Chapel Speaker, Variety Show 
Highlight First Campus FTA Day 

Dr. Don McGarey, associate professor 
of education at Penn State, spoke in cha- 
pel on February 3 on the topic, "The 
Place of Religion in the World Today." 
This address was one of the highlights of 
FTA Day, sponsored by the George D. 
Gossard chapter of Future Teachers of 
America here on campus. 

"No Greater Gift," a National Educa- 
tion Association film on the teaching 
profession, was shown in Philo Hall in 
the afternoon, followed by a brief dis- 
cussion period which Dr. McGarey con- 
ducted. An informal tea was also held 
for faculty members in honor of Dr. Mc- 
Garey at the Faculty House. 

Climax of FTA Day was "The Whist- 
lers' Show," a variety show starring FTA 
members, presented that evening in the 
auxiliary gymnasium of the Lynch Mem- 
orial Physical Education Building. In- 
cluded were James Barrie's one-act play, 
"The Old Lady Shows Her Medals," and 
several musical numbers. FTA members 
Joyce Dissinger, Joyce Hill, Darlene 
Moyer, Dorothy Roudabush, Tom Wolf - 
gang, and DeWitt Zuse comprised the 
play cast. Directed by Dr. Gilbert D. 
McKlveen, FTA advisor, this play told 
the story of an old English charwoman 
and the World War I soldier whom she 
adopted as her son. 

Kalo-Delphian To Present Play 

Goodbye, My Fancy March 6 

After the play Kenneth Keiser played 
marimba music and Richard Besecker, 
Rebecca Rietz, Darlene Moyer sang so- 
los. Piano accompanists for their num- 
bers were Joyce Snyder, Bruce Thomp- 
son, and Marian Fortna. Jim Baker, Nor- 
man Blantz, and Frank Retrievi were re- 
sponsible for the stage and the lighting in 
connection with the play, while Cyrus 
Dietrich acted as master of ceremonies 
for the entire show. 

Joint meeting with the Annville High 
School PTA on Thursday, March 19, is 
the next program for Lebanon Valley's 
FTA. Participating in this meeting, which 
will be a panel discussion, will be FTA 
members Barbara Ranck and Lou Sor- 
rentino. They will explain what they ex- 
pect to contribute to the teaching pro- 
fession. Two members of the high school 
faculty will state what they have given to 
their profession while two parents will 
describe what they expect teachers to 
contribute to the education of their chil- 
dren. " 

Green Blotter Suggests 
College Mascot 

Green Blotter has often felt that an 
official mascot was needed on this cam- 
pus. Therefore, on page two of this issue 
they have presented a composite article 
which they hope will stimulate student 
interest in choosing an official mascot. 

Queen To Be Crowned 
At Valentine Ball 
Tomorrow Evening 

The semi-formal Valentine Ball, spon- 
sored by the Men's Day Student Con- 
gress and the Women's Commuter Coun- 
cil, will head the social calendar this 
weekend. The dance, which will be held 
in the auxiliary gymnasium on Friday 
evening, February 13, from 9 to 12 p.m., 
will feature the crowning of the "Queen 
of Hearts," one of the day student girls 
chosen by the students in a vote conduct- 
ed during chapel. The queen will be 
crowned by Miss Constance Dent, Dean 
of Women. 

During intermission a floor show will 
be presented by various of the Valley's 
talented students. Refreshments of cake 
and punch will be served. 

Gene Tritch and his combo will pro- 
vide music for dancing. The dance, while 
semi-formal, is flowerless. 

Psych Club Hears 
Speech By Kilhefner 

On Monday evening, January 12, Dr 
Galen C. Kilhefner, Professor of Psy- 
chology and Sociology at Elizabethtown 
College, addressed Lebanon Valley's Psy- 
chology Club on the subject, "Student 
Personnel Services in Small Colleges." 
He touched briefly on the philosophy of 
personnel work, the student services gen- 
erally included in such a program; then, 
in greater detail, he discussed those ser- 
vices which he considers often neglected 
in small colleges or of special interest to 

Dr. Kilhefner is a graduate of Ephrata 
High School. He received his B.S. from 
Elizabethtown College, his master's de- 
gree from Temple, and his EdD. from 
the University of Pennsylvania. His field 
of concentration is his doctoral program 
was college personnel work. 

In addition to teaching sociology, Dr. 
Kilhefner is director of the testing pro- 
gram and in charge of placement at Eli- 
zabethtown College. He also serves on 
several committees which are concerned 
with the personnel program of the col- 
lege. His first position at that institution 
was that of Field Secretary in 1941. Hs 
has been a professor there since 1945. 

Prior to his employment at Elizabeth- 
town College, Dr. Kilhefner was a sec- 
ondary school teacher for seven years 
and a principal for four years in Lam- 
peter Township Schools. 

S. C. A. 

A Spiritual Retreat was held on Satur- 
day, February 7, at L. B. Smith's Recre- 
ation Center, Mechanicsburg. The all 
day affair, sponsored by the Student 
Christian Associaton, was the first of its 
kind tried at Lebanon Valley and repre- 
sented an attempt to provide an opportu- 
nity for all the students on campus to 
attend a retreat similar to the one held 
by the S.C.A. Cabinet in September. 

Dr. Paul W. Millhouse, editor of the 
E.U.B. paper, the Telescope Messenger, 
j was the guest speaker for the seminar 
during the day, and Rev. Melvin Guy- 
man conducted a closing worship ser-

Under the sponsorship of the S.C.A., 

a special service commemorating the 

Universal World Day of Prayer will be

college church. 


The chapel service on Tuesday, Feb- 
ruary 24, will be conducted by the Stu- 
dent Christian Association. Dr. E. M.

International Weekend, a successful 
affair on Lebanon Valley's campus for 
two years, will be held this year the 
weekend of March 21-22. 

On Friday evening, March 6, 1953, 
Goodbye, My Fancy, a comedy in three 
acts by Kay Kanin, will be presented by 
the Kappa Lamba Sigma and Delphian 
Societies. The story concerns a liberal 
congressman fresh from wartime experi- 
ences as a correspondent who returns to 
her Alma Mater to receive an honorary 
degree. She has brought with her a doc- 
umentary film to be shown to the fresh 
young graduates to acquaint them with 
the horrors of war and with the poten- 
tilaties the future holds for them. How- 
ever, the movie is considered harsh and 
improper by the college officials, so Miss 
Reed has a fight on her hands. The con- 
flict exposes the president as a pliable 
and irresolute figure instead of the up- 
right and outspoken educator with whom 
Miss Reed thought she had been in love 
for so many years. This disillusionment 
drives her into the arms of a past war- 
time acquaintance, now a Life photo- 
grapher, who has come to Good Hope 
College to cover the event. And from 
there on the surprises fly thick and fast, 
until the inevitable happy ending. 

Polished, loaded with laughs, and car- 
rying a strong underlying plea for com- 
mon-sense, it is a stage piece that is 
steadily entertaining throughout. 

The production will be directed by T. 
D. Keller and will star Nancy Daugherty 
as Agatha Reed, with Paul Holligan, 
Nancy Wolfe, and Clair Kelly in the ma- 
jor supporting roles. The setting will be 
designed and executed by Bruce Thomp- 

Kalo-Delphian will hold their twen- 
tieth annual dinner-dance at the Hotel 
Berkshire in Reading on March 7, 1953. 
The affair, held regularly since 1934, 
marks the anniversary of the founding 
of Kappa Lambda Sigma. The Anniver- 
sary Queen, chosen by the members of 
the Delphian Society, will be crowned 
according to the twenty year old tradition 
just before the dinner is served. The 
dinner-dance has special significance this 
year, since it wil climax the celebration 
of Kalo's seventy-fifth year at Lebanon 
Valley College. 

A seven course dinner will be served 
at six thirty o'clock and dancing will 
follow from nine o'clock until midnight. 
All members, graduate members, and 
their guests have been invited to partici- 
pate. Special guests of the societies will 
be Mr. and Mrs. V. Earl Light and Mr. 
and Mrs. Donald E. Fields. 

For the first time since the war a 
joint-society initiation of any significance 
has been held on Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege campus. Kappa Lambda Sigma 
and Delphian societies joined in an in- 
vestiture ceremony on the evening of 
January 16, 1953, which drove home in 
the minds of the initiates the fact that 
these societies intend to re-emphasize the 
role of the social society on this campus 
by re-establishing all of the meaningful 
and impressive social functions which 
were dropped as a result of the war. 

Guest speaker Howard M. Kreitzer, 
Dean of the College, outlined the pur- 
pose and the place of the fraternal or- 
ganization in student life and suggested 
specific methods by which such societies 
on this campus may strengthen their po- 
sitions and become more influential in 
matters vital to each and every student. 
Through the promotion of friendship, 
morality and of knowledge, he said, the 
fraternal organization can become a 
leading factor in student-administration 
relationships and can serve to orient the 
student socially much as the classroom 
does academically. 

The ceremonies were impressive by 
their simplicity. The Delphian Society 
welcomed its new members with a can- 
dle-light ceremony, Kappa Lambda Sig- 
ma with a solemn oath-taking.

Your Student Council 

The eighth regular meeting of the Student-Faculty Council of Lebanon Valley 
College was called to order by John Walter, vice-president, on Thursday evening, 
February 5, 1953 at 7:30 P. M., in room sixteen of the Administration Building. 

The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. 

It was suggested that a formal written recommendation to re-install the an- 
nouncements over the public address system in the dining hall be sent to Dean 

Ted Stagg informed the Council that information on the membership and 
organization of the National Student Association would be placed in Dean Hays' 
office tomorrow for examination at will by any member of the Council. 

The chairman then read the Student-Faculty mail. This consisted of a 
subscription to the Intercollegiate Press Bulletin which was not approved by the 
Council, a pamphlet on "Study Abroad" which will be posted, a request for in- 
formation from Rutgers University about racial discrimation on our own campus 
which will be acknowledged, and finally a letter from the National Student As- 
sociation which will be acknowledged. 

The new business brought forth a report of suggested improvements and 
actions. These improvements had been discussed in various speeches given this 
past semester in English 21, 1st semester speech course. Matters discussed in 
Speech Class pertinent to the Student Faculty Council were: 1 — publishing 
the minutes of the meetings of the Council, 2 — problems of school spirit, 3 — 
students attending Council meetings are just anxious to get out of the meetings 
rather than discuss any vital issues thoughtfully, 4 — the place of sororities and 
fraternities on campus, 5 — freshmen should not be allowed to go home until 
Thanksgiving vacation thus enabling them to become more thoroughly oriented 
into college life and spirit, 6 — the scheduling of activities on the social calendar 
should be done more effectively and accurately, and it should be published and 
distributed on time, 7 — the members of the Council should not only effectively 
represent their respective organizations but they should also effecively represent 
their student body and discuss and take action on the gripes of their student 
body, and 8 — all suggestions for improvement of student activities and social 
life should be brought before the Council. 

As a result of the discussion on these suggestions the following actions were 
suggested and approved by vote: 

1 — A formal letter to each of the four governing bodies recommended that 
they consider the merits of keeping all Frosh on campus until the Thanksgiving 
vacation. Naturally, these closed weekends would be filled with various ac- 

2 — The suggestion was made that Washington Hall should be open to the 
students after 10 o'clock in the evening. Dean Dent, an adviser to the Council, 
reported that there was action being taken to establish a student recreation cen- 

3 — Ted Stagg voiced an objection to the ruling by the treasurer's office 
which states the treasury balance of each club at the end of the school year 
should go into a general school fund. This ruling is now a main topic of dis- 
cussion at the Student Finance Committee meetings and favorable action is 

4 — It was moved and seconded that when there is a definite program plan- 
ned the four governing bodies be notified of the Council's discussion and action. 
Futhermore, a report of the decision of the four governing bodies should be 
made at the next meeting of the Council. 

5 — It was moved by Ted Stagg and seconded that the minutes of each 
meeting of the Council be published in La Vie Collegienne. 

6 — It was moved and second that the social calendar be brought to the 
next meeting of the Council and examined at that time for accuracy of dates 
and effectiveness of social program. 

7 — Ted Stagg moved and Charlie Blaich seconded that a recommendation be 
made to the Administration that the Council be responsible for the scheduling 
of activity dates on the official social calendar. The motion was amended and 
approved that a committee be appointed to study Franklin and Marshall's pro- 
cedures in the student handling of their social calendar. The appointed com- 
mittee consists of; Charlie Blaich, chairman, Ted Stagg, Gail Edgar, Ross Fasick, 
and Howard Pachasa. 

8 — A committee was appointed to examine bookstore profits and their 
distribution and use. The committee to see Mr. Moyer consists of: Don Hedge- 
cock, chairman; Ted Stagg and Betty Jane Swisher. 

The meeting was then adjourned. The motion for adjournment was made 
by Don Hedgecock and seconded by Charlie Blaich. 

Respectfully Submitted, 
GAIL EDGAR, Secretary 

/ have written the above from notes taken by Secretary of the Council Gail 
Edgar. I sincerely hope that this new and permanent column "Your Student 
Council" will not only keep us more informed with accurate knowledge of the

Governing body and all the other phases of curricular and extracurricular activity 
inherent in Lebanon Valley College. Associate Editor Stagg. 


The following note was received by 
the editor of LA VIE on January 6 from 
Dr. Charles NIoca: 

I would be grateful if you would al- 
low me, through your columns, to 
thank the students of our college for 
the sympathy so many extended to me 
and to my family. I deeply appreciate 
the sincerity of their thoughts and feel- 

The following letter has been received 
by the LA VIE staff, obviously as the ex- 
pression of sincerely felt convictions on 
the part of a sizeable group of our stu- 
dents. Following its past policy, LA VIE 
presents the letter, though its statements 
are not necesarily the convictions of the 
paper's staff members. 

February 9, 1953 
Annville, Pa. 

Open letter to the Administration 

Dear Sirs: 

Let us call to your attention the sad 
state of sports publicity on campus. 
Our basketball team, one of the top 
small college teams in the country, gets 
less national publicity than most other 
schools of our size. In only two papers 
does our team get any mention at all; 
these are two local papers, the Lebanon 
Daily News and the Harrisburg Patriot. 
No one, it seems, takes the trouble to 
inform either the New York Times or 
the Philadelphia Inquirer of the results 
of our games. This is evidenced by 
the fact that the Inquirer erroneously 
published word of our "defeat" by 
Gettysburg last week. If the publicity 
department had been on the "ball" this 
wouldn't have happened. 

A shocking' example of this was 
evidenced by an attempt of one of our 
students to get the team picture of the 
Albright game published by the New 
York Times. He was informed this 
was impossible due to the fact that 
the Lebanon Daily News had priority 
over it. It seems to us that the pub- 
licity department ko-tows to the local 
papers and ignores the national ones. 
Subsequently we are unknown outside 
of our own little sphere even though we 
are the only undefeated team in Penn- 
sylvania at this writing. Teams like 
Franklin and Marshall, Gettysburg, 
Muhlenberg, and Albright get ten times 
the publicity that we do, yet we are 
on a par with them. One wonders what 
is behind this terrible lack of publicity. 
Maybe its just plain laziness. Certain- 
ly we are cutting our own throats, for 
if a top high school athlete has his 
choice between Lebanon Valley and 
other small colleges in this state he 
will invariably choose the one which 
he knows the most about. Since Gettys- 
burg and Franklin and Marshall can 
get their girls marble teams in the 
Times along with all other sports in- 
formation, the least we can do is in- 
form the newspapers about the doings 
of our basketball team. 

Its high time something was done. 
In a gripe session in the Men's Dorm 
last year the poor publicity of our 
sports was brought up. Dr. Miller 
promised to do something about it. Ap- 
parently nothing has been done, since 
the publicity is just as bad this year as 
it has been in years past. If we do 
not receive any publicity, what is the 
publicity department's job?

Clutching my copy of the New York Times I made my way to a small 
booth recently vacated by twelve high school students, who were now crowd- 
ing around the juke box, singing along to the blare of "Blackberry Boogie." 
After shoving aside cigar-filled ashtrays, obsolete crib notes, three chewed 
pencils (one of which I kept as it still had two good sharpenings left) and 
avoiding assorted remains of hamburgers, french fries and soggy straws I opened 
the morning paper to continue reading an article which had caught my attention 
during Chapel. It was only a small item tucked beneath the front page head- 

The dateline of the article was Hershey, Pennsylvania, and it began in an 
ordinary manner — "Hershey Zoo Official is Expecting" followed by — "Long 
Awaited Addition to Arrive This Month." The Times went on to elaborate these 
profound phrases, mentioning that the very rare Hermalayan Alphine elbad- 
ritch was being sent to the United States, via business return envelope, from a 
National Geographic expedition in Poali-Lampoor, a small autonomous state 
in that region. To celebrate this outstanding accomplishment of distinguished 
archaeologists and Albright College fraternity pledges, the Zoo is planning a 
dinner which will be addressed by Dr. Daw Lee Madison, world reknown au- 
thority on the elbadritch. Dr. Madison is also author of the recent best sellers 
"The Growing Problem of the Elbadritch," "A Birds' Eye View of the Elbad- 

As I turned the page, Boris (class of '46 but still an LVC student because 
of his repeated failure to pass Orientation), mascot of the Men's Dorm, plodded 
towards me, lowered himself beside me and commenced to nibble on a chocolate 
almond bar, his dietary mainstay. 

"Please be careful," I pleaded, trying to pull the open paper out from under 
his elbows and the attached 265 pound hulk. His eyes spotted the caption "All 
the News That's Fit to Print" and immediately we both observed the required 
two minutes of silence, a practice customary after any discourtesy is shown to 
this great American publication. (Up till this moment I was never sure that 
Boris had ever been in Room 18). 

The Times was none the worse for wear and I resumed reading. The 
reverent aspect of the preceding two-minute ritual finally wore off and Boris, 
after wiping his chocolate smeared face with a chocolate smeared kleenex' 
blurted out, "Dig me hey kid, whotcha reeding, huh?" 

"Boris, old pal," I answered, "this isn't the Daily News." (I could see 
his eyes sparkle as he anticipated the next words). "This," I continued, "is 
the New York Times and one must read more than just the first paragraph to 
know what one is reading. This is about an elbadritch (the blank expression 
returned) that is going to be at the Hershey Zoo." The word Hershey aroused 
a response. Boris lives entirely on chocolate almond bars. 

Our intellectual interlude was interrupted by a reverberating rebel yell 
emanating from the juke box. Up jumped Boris, his eyes fixed on the rotating 
black disc. His nickel, earned by swallowing ground glass on a dare, finally 
came through and his favorite crooner, the Demented Dixie Schlimiel, was 
yodeling Boris' favorite ballad, "It Takes Two to TooToo on a TooToo." 

I welcomed the opportunity to continue reading. The correspondent ex- 
plained each of the technical terms of the expedition's report in easy-to-under- 
stand language. For instance, the article mentioned that the elbadritch moves by 
strumentation. This is simply the ingratting of the dermifuge which compensates 
for the subclension of the posterior deltoid muscle. These parenthetical explana- 
tions made the reading so much more enjoyable. 

The elbadritch, I discovered, is classified as a bird even though it flies 
only two inches above the ground. It is bilaterally asymmetrical, resembling an 
elliptoid rhombus with the body tapering towards the tail end where the head is. 
The head rotates completely, thereby allowing the elbadritch to see not only 
where it is going but where it has been. Although the elbadritch is sexless it 
still has a unique mating call which is described as a staccato series of high 
pitched bass grunts, followed by a thumping whistle embellished with melodious 
pauses. Since this frustrated creature is sexless, there is no reply to this call 
and depending upon the ardor of the bird it may go on calling for days at a 

The natives of Poali-Lampoor worship this creature and offer up many 
valuable articles in its homor. GI's stationed there during the last World War 
brought back to our country an expression, "That's for the birds," from that 
locale. Benjamin Franklin, an ardent devotee of elbadritch lore, once confessed 
that his saying, "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush" as well as, "The 
early bird catches the worm," came directly from a native proverb. 

The item ended with a small paragraph noting that the American variety 
(genue lebanonium balonium) is common to the state of Pennsylvania and 
more specifically to the. immediate vicinity of Lebanon County. Many au- 
thorities believe that the elbadritch originated here and migrated to other parts 
of the world. 

At this point, the Southern Schlimiel had "too-tooed" eight times and was 
warming up on, "Walla Walla, the Stool Pigeon Serenade," Boris' hit of 1951- 
He staggered towards me, glassy-eyed and spellbound by the cacaphony of his 
vocalist. "I have to move fast," I thought to myself, "before he corners me 
again." "Well," I said, folding the Times in its waterproof wrapper, "I'll be 
seeing you. Don't forget the homework in Harmonica 38." 

His falsetto bass voice boomed across the room, stopping me in my tracks. 

"To the library," I yelled back over my shoulder," I have a date with an 
elbadritch." Ingratting, dermifuge ... the strange terms fascinated me. "If jt 
originated around here," I repeated to myself, "then Miss Myers should know 
something about them. Who knows, maybe its a second cousin to a coelacanth 
(the elbadritch, not Boris). 

The library was deserted (obviously final exams were over). As I a P* 
proached the desk a notice on the bulletin board caught my attention. "Hurry ! 
Hurry! Enter the Elbadritch Contest! See La Vie for Rules!" Fortunately there 
was a copy of La Vie on the table and sure enough, there was a notice on 
two telling all about the contest. Have you read it?

Those of you who are upperclassmen will probably remember Janet Schaef- 
fer, who was a member of the conserv class of '54. Janet is now a member of 
the Women's Air Force Band, which will be touring Europe during the coming 
months. She is playing the bassoon in the concert band and sax in the march- 
ing and jazz bands. All of us who knew Janet wish her the best of luck on her 
new adventure. If any of you would like to send her greetings, her address is

Several members of the Conserv are providing entertainment for the Valen- 
tine Dance on Friday, February 13, which begins at 9 p.m. The Valentine 
Queen will be announced at the dance and will be crowned at 10:15 by Miss 
Constance Dent, Dean of Women. Following this, a floor show will be held. 
Willie Lutz, the master of ceremonies, will play his ukulele. Jane Smith and 
Bruce Thompson, "The Old Smoothies," will dance a soft-shoe tap. Ben Lutz 
and Nancy Wolf, the "Sweethearts of Song," and Doris Cortright will sing 
several selections. The floor show will also contain a chorus line. This affair 
is sponsored by the Day Students but everyone is invited to attend. As a re- 
minder to you fellows, this is a flowerless dance. 

Miss Shirley Stagg and Mrs. Suzanne LeCarpentier, professors of piano and 
cello, respectively, in the Conservatory Music, are conducting their own musical 
radio program every Saturday night from 9:30 until 10 p.m. over WLBR. Guest 
on their program this week is Professor Reynaldo Rovers, who will sing several 
selections. Mr. Rovers, a tenor, is on the faculty of the Conservatory. 

Of Coming Interest 
All those who are interested in listening to a program of orchestra and 
choral music should be certain to keep the evening of Friday, February 27, in 
mind. On this evening the Lebanon Valley College Orchestra and Glee Club 
will present a joint concert under the direction of Professor Edward P. Rutledge. 
The actual selections to be performed will be announced at a later date. 

Stories In Music 

The same year that wild hurricanes struck New England, Hitler took over 
Austria, and women adopted upswept hairdoes, Roy Harris wrote his Symphony 
No. 3. This has been called the first truly great work produced in America 
because of its epic folk quality. In it are pulses the spirit of the West, the 
territory in which Harris was born, and the country through which the covered 
wagons pulled its load of hopeful pioneers. 

Roy Harris himself has experienced these improvements since he and his 
Scotch-Irish parents crossed broad plains in an oxcart, earned their living by 
farming and truck driving, and thus he learned the tool of music in this en- 

Dr. Sparks Appointed 
College Chaplain 

The establishment of the office of 
College Chaplain at Lebanon Valley 
College and the appointment of Dr. 
W. Maynard Sparks, assistant professor 
of religion, to the new post has been 
announced by Dr. Frederic K. Miller, 
college president. 

Approval for the creation of the new 
office and the appointment of Dr. 
Sparks, was given by the Executive 
Committee of the Board of Trustees of 
the college in a meeting held in Har- 
risburg on Friday, January 16. 

In his new position as College Chap- 
lain, Dr. Sparks will direct a program 
of religious counselling, both on and off 
the campus, in cooperation with the 
general college program. 

He will also co-ordinate the programs 
and activities of student campus religi- 
ous organizations and will serve as 
chairman of the Faculty Committee on 
Religious Activities. He will represent 
the college at the various religious con- 
ferences and assemblies and will aid 
in strengthening the spirit of coopera- 
tion between the college and the sup- 
porting annual conferences of the Evan- 
gelical United Brethren Church. 

In addition to his duties as Chaplain, 
Dr. Sparks will continue to teach several 
courses in the Department of Religion. 


Fellows, with Valentine's Day just 
around the corner, we thought you'd like 
some current definitions on an ever-pop- 
ular subject, girls! 

For you Chem majors — here's a little 
something from the Drexel Triangle 
about your ideal woman. 

Long, long ago we learned from 
Mother Goose what little girls are made 
of: "Sugar and spice and all that's nice; 
that's what little girls are made of." As 
we and they grew older we had reason 
many times to suspect that in the prog- 
ress of becoming young women, their 
original chemical composition changed — 
and not always for the better. More light 
has been thrown on that ever-interesting 
subject by modern chemical research. 
Science has come forward with a list of 
the principal ingredients Nature uses in 
constructing a young woman. Here they 
are, boys: Thirty to forty teaspoons of 
salt, eight to ten gallons of water, 
enough lime to whitewash a small gar- 
age, glycerine enough to form a com- 
pound capable of bursting a bomb, 
enough gluten to make five pounds of 
glue, phosphorus enough to make 2,200 
match heads, sufficient fat to make sever- 
al pounds of soap, enough iron to make 
a six penny nail, sulphur enough to rid 
a dog or cat of fleas, and, finally, a 
measly quarter pound of sugar, which 
is utterly insufficient to sweeten and ren- 
der palatable such a gosh awful mixture 
°f water, salt, lime, glycerine, glue, 
Phosphorus, grease, iron and sulphur. 

Here's how a chemist looks at a worn- 
an — from The Michigan State Daily. 

The following is an analysis of the 
feature known as woman as seen thru 
me eyes of a chemist: 

Symbol— Wo. 

Accepted Atomic Weight— 120. 

Physical Properties — Boils at nothing 
and freezes at any minute. Melts when 
properly treated; very bitter if not well 

Occurrence — Found wherever man ex- 

Chemical Properties — Possesses great 
affinity for gold, silver, platinum and 
precious stones. Violent reaction if left 
alone. Able to absorb great amounts of 
food matter. Turns green when placed 
beside a more attractive better developed 

Uses — Highly ornamental. Useful as a 
tonic in acceleration of cure for low 
spirits and an equalizer of the distribu- 
tion of wealth. Is probably most effect- 
ive income reducing agent known. 

Caution — Highly explosive in inex- 
perienced hands. 

Also, from the Idaho Argonaut are 
some new ideas on the same subject. 

I think that I shall never see 
A girl refuse a meal that's free, 
A girl who won't forever wear 
A bunch of junk to match her hair, 
A girl that looks at boys all day 
And figures ways to make them pay, 
Girls are loved by jerks like me, 
'Cause who would want to kiss a tree? 

Some girls may be good for nothing, 
but they are seldom naughty for nothing. 

The man who claims he never made a 
mistake in his life generally has a wife 
who did. 

Here's something also on women from 
the Universily of Virginia's Cavalier 

We have wondered for a long time 
what a guided missile was. We've read 
something about them almost every day 
in the newspapers and so we asked an 
engineering friend of ours, and this was 
his definition: An automobile with a 
woman driver. 

Scholarship Week-End 
Scheduled For Feb. 28 

More than sixteen thousand dollars in 
scholarships will be offered by Leban- 
on Valley College for the 1953-54 
term, according to an announcement 
made by D. Clark Carmean, director 
of admissions at the Annville institu- 

Competitive examinations for the

English Departmnet 
Offers New Course 

A new course in vocabulary build- 
ing will be offered by the Department 
of English at Lebanon Valley College 
beginning September, 1953. 

Announcement of the new course was 
made today by Dr. George G. Struble, 
head of the English Department. 

Entitled "Word Study," the course 
will be given one hour a week through- 
out the school year and will be open 
to freshmen and sophomores. It will 
deal with methods of increasing the 
vocabulary, a survey of the origins of 
English words, semantics, special prob- 
lems of pronunciation and spelling, and 
special linguistic processes. 

The introduction of the new course 
will fill several needs, acording to Dr. 
Struble. "First," Dr. Struble declared, 
"the course is aimed at helping in- 
coming freshmen, many of whom are 
woefully inadequate in vocabulary." 

"Also," Dr. Struble asserted, "the 
course will meet at a long-standing de- 
mand for a one-hour course in the 
English Department. Students have 
frequently expressed a desire for a one- 
hour course which would aid them in 
completing their seventeen hours." 

Pol. Sci. Club Prepares 
For I.C.G. Convention 

The regular meeting of the Political 
Science Club was held in Washington 
Hall, February 4, at 4 p. m. Charles 
Reed, the Student Chairman for ICG 
(Intercollegiate Conference on Govern- 
ment), presided over the main portion of 
the business meeting. He announced that 
William Walborn will be his assistant 
and appointed all of the club members 
to various committees which will draw 
up bills to be presented at the Regional 
ICG convention at Dickinson College on 
March 14. 

The club voted to support Herbert 
Heffley, the club's president, as a candi- 
date for the Speakership at the Model 
State Convention which the ICG group 
will hold in Harrisburg the last week end 
in April. If elected as speaker, Heffley 
would preside over the entire ICG dele- 
gation. This would be quite an honor, 
as well as a very responsible job for

cake which was symbolic of Kalo's sev- 
enty-five years of activity on campus. 

Dancing commenced at nine o'clock, 
during which punch and cake were 
served in a candle-lit alcove which had 
been decorated by Miss Ann Rydberg 
and her several assistants. 

The entire program took place in the 
Lynch Memorial Building. Mr. Paul 
Holligan was in charge of arrangements 
and also acted as master of ceremonies.

Glee Club, Band Play 
In Harrisburg Forum 

A concert by the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege Glee Club and Concert Band will be 
presented in the Harrisburg Forum on 
Sunday, April 26, at 3:00 p.m. The con- 
cert is sponsored by the Evangelical Uni- 
ted Brethren Ministerial Association of 
Harrisburg and Vicinity. The committee 
in charge of arrangements, which in- 
cludes several alumni of the college, is 
as follows: Dr. H. E. Schaeffer, chair- 
man; Rev. Bruce C. Souders, Rev. Will- 
iam Sheriff, Dr. C. H. Stine, Rev. Lester 
M. Kauffman, and Rev. F. J. Rehrig. 

The concert will be supported by free

trons whose names will appear on the 

Evelyn Eby,. a junior at Lebanon Val- 
ley College, attended the Quadrennial 
Study Conuference of the United Student 
Christian Council, held at Morgan State 
College, Baltimore, December 27 thru 
January 3. Two hundred eighty-two dele- 
gates attended the Conference, one of 
three held during the Christmas vaca- 
tion. Others were at Karkville, Missouri, 
and Palo Alto, California. 

Unique in this country, the Conference 
had significance for the Student Chris- 
tian movement in the United States. Ex- 
ploring issues of the times, students wres- 
tled with three areas of concern — the 
Church, the University, and the World 

J. Robert Nelson, USCC Study Secre- 
tary, declared at the end of the week: 
"Students today know that they lack 
deep understanding of the meanings of 
life crises. The Conference has driven 
them to study and to work in social, eco- 
nomic, and political fields, with a unique- 
ly Christian imperative." 

Worship services and Bible study were 
fundamental features of the meeting. In 
these traditional Christian activities the 
students refreshed their minds and deep- 
ened their understanding of the word, 
of God and His message for our times. 

University Study Dean William H. 
Poteat set the theme of the Conference. 
"Man has lost his way," he said, "be- 
cause he has torn himself free of the 
relationships with which he used to be 
identified." Students sought to apply the 
word of God found in the Scriptures to 
the situation which confronts them. They 
also used textbooks and novels to illus- 
trate their situation. They discussed po- 
litical and economic problems which were 
illuminated by their Christian incites. 

Experiences of the Conference will be 
carried over into the life of campus 
Christian groups to which the delegates 
return. "These conferences are an im- 
portant first step in helping all student 
Christian movements to enlarge their 
programs of study on the campus," said 
Harold H. Viehman, Associate Director 
of Student Work, Presbyterian Church 
U.S.A. "We have learned much that will 
help us to speak with conviction and 
basic understanding. ..." 

Dean George C. Grant, of Morgan 
State College, declared that this was one 
of the most significant conferences ever 
held on the campus of Morgan State 
College. The participants in the Confer- 
ence actually put into practice theories 
of interracial cooperation. It was stimu- 
lating to observe the study groups in 
operation where earnest students of dif- 
ferent races and different religious faiths 
were struggling with some of the basic is- 
sues which confront humanity today. 
The feeling prevails that we need not be 
too concerned about the future of our 
country or of the world when the youth 
of our land can come together and with 
the motivation of Christian dynamics, 
meet the issues of our societly squarely 
and without fear. Our only regret is 
that the student body at Morgan State 
College cannot be here to observe Chris- 
tianity and democracy at work. 

Conference leaders included: William 
H. Poteat, Assistant Piofessor of Philos- 
ophy, University of North Carolina; 
George W. Forrell, Associate Professor 
of Philosophy, Gustavus Adolphus Col- 
lege, St. Peter, Minnesota; J. Robert 
Nelson, Study Secretary of the United 
Student Christian Council, New York 
City; Bernhard W. Anderson, Professor 
of Old Testament Interpretation, Col- 
gate-Rochester Divinity School, Roches- 
ter, New York.

VPs Courtmen With 13 Wins State's Only Undefeated Quintette 

Marquette's Mighty Marauders 
Tame Muhlenberg Mules 

Lebanon Valley's basketball team took a big step toward an undefeated 
season when it conquered highly touted Muhlenberg last Monday night by a 
score of 86-77. The game, which was held in the Dutchmen's gym, was a tre- 
mendous victory for the Valley since Muhlenberg plays a big time schedule and 
subsequently has a team to match. Muhlenberg started out as if they were going 
to take charge from the opening whistle. Paced by Bob Maxwell and Dick 
Eckert, who dumped in three buckets apiece, the Mules took a 21-18 lead at 
the end of the first quarter, and they held a five point lead throughout most of 
the half. With Frank Cutko and Dick Rudolph contributing, the Mules moved 
out to a 6 point lead midway through the second quarter: 34-28. Then the 
Dutchmen started to open up. Bill Vought and Lou Sorrentino cashed in with 
a pair of buckets, and Howie Landa tied up the score. Sorrentino's basket then 
put the Dutchmen out in front for the first time as the half ended with a score 
of 42-40. 

At the start of the second half the 
Dutchmen, sparked by the accurate 
shooting of Bill Vought, shot out to a 
46-41 lead. They looked as if they 
would take a commanding lead right 
then. However, the Mules fought back 
and prevented Lebanon Valley from in- 
creasing their lead by more than six 
points. The third quarter ended with 
the Dutchmen ahead 62-58. Early in 
the last quarter the Mules staged a 
desperate rally to even things up. 
Osodachy put in two quick baskets for 
Muhlenberg and Eckert contributed with 
several more to put his team back in 
the ball game. However, the Dutch- 
men were not to be denied. Leon Mil- 
ler and Howie Landa led the Valley's 
scoring as they pulled ahead of the 
Mules in the final minutes to win go- 
ing away, 86-77. Thus Lebanon Valley 
cleared its biggest obstacle in their fight 
for a perfect season. Some tough games 
still remain, however. Next Saturday the 
Dutchmen travel to Reading to meet 
Albright. Also in weeks to come the 
Dutchmen must meet F. & M. and 
Elizabethtown Colleges, both on the op- 
position's courts. 

In the first game Muhlenberg J. V. 
defeated a game L. V. squad 69-62. 
Jerry Stegler, a newcomer to Lebanon 
Valley, was high scorer with 24 points.

Moravian Greyhounds 
Lose To Varsity Five 

Lebanon Valley College lengthened its 
winning streak to twelve straight games 
as the team whipped Moravian on the 
Greyhounds' home court by a score of 
78-61. Only in the opening minutes did 
the Dutchmen falter in their quest for 
another victory. The Greyhounds, paced 
by Dave Honer's two baskets, pulled out 
to a 7-2 lead. However, the Dutchmen, 
slightly nettled, put the pressure on and 
with Landa, Furda, and Miller hitting, 
the Valley tied the game at 10 apiece 
and then pulled out into the lead, never 
to be headed. Landa hit for two quick 
buckets at the end of the first quarter to 
put Lebanon Valley ahead 18-15. In the 
second quarter, paced by Finkelstein and 
Miller, the Dutchmen widened their 
lead, and at half time the score was 

When the second half started the 
Dutchmen really got into high gear. 
With Miller and Vought leading the at- 
tack, the team moved ahead 49-39. With 
Sotah and Barreino pacing the way, 
they managed to keep within 10 points 
of the Valley throughmost of the sec- 
ond half. It wasn't until near the end 
of the game that the Dutchmen pulled 
out to their winning margin of 17 
points. Leon Miller was high man for 
Lebanon Valley with twenty-one points,

E-town, Scranton, 
Albright Fall Victim 
To Dribbling Dutchmen 

With a last quarter full court press 
Lebanon Valley broke open a tight game 
against a surprisingly strong Elizabeth- 
town five to win its ninth straight game 

70- 58. 

Howie Landa, sophomore Philadel- 
phia ace, was high for the night with 21 
points; however, the Dutchmen had to 
play their best to beat the Blue Jays. 

Possessing a zone defense, Elizabeth- 
town was able to keep the Valley scor- 
ing down and as the third quarter was 
leading 36-33. The Valley rebounded to 
take a 41-40 lead at the end of the third 
session. Then, sparked by Landa's fine 
play, the Dutchmen took a commanding 
lead, 68-53. 

The two teams face each other again 
on the Elizabethtown court on February 

In the preliminary game the Valley 
Junior Varsity lost out to the Blue Jays 
by a 49-38 count. Chet Stroh was 
high with 13. 


Lebanon Valley College's Flying 
Dutchmen " extended their winning 
streak to 10 straight when they con- 
quered their upstate rivals, Scranton for 
the second time 91-76, on the Dutch- 
men's home court. Previously they had 
journeyed to Scranton to administer a 
80-65 whipping to the Royals. Leon 
Miller was the leading scorer for the 
Dutchmen with 25 points as they broke 
away to an early lead. With Miller 
leading the way the Dutchmen piled up 
a 21-11 lead at the end of the first 
quarter, staged a 12 point splurge while 
holding the Royals scoreless and won 
going away. Bill Vought, Howie Landa 
and Lou Sorrentino shared second hon- 
ors in the scoring with 14 points apiece 
while Bob Bessier was high for Scran- 
ton with 25. In the first game the 
Lebanon Valley JV beat Scranton JV 
50-47. Stroh and Zimmerman shared 
high point honors with 16. 


One of the most amazing games of 
the season was played on the Lebanon 
Valley court as the Flying Dutchmen 
humiliated their arch-rival, Albright 74- 
49. At the start of the fourth quarter 
with the Dutchmen leading Albright 

71- 40, the Pussy Cats gave up and be- 
gan to freeze the ball so they wouldn't 
be shown up too badly. They refused 
to drive in and shoot the ball even when 
the Dutchmen offered them no opposi- 
tion. The high point of these shen- 
nanigans was reached when an enter- 
prising photographer snapped a pic- 
ture of the squad, arms entwined while 
"play" was still progressing. Finally 
with 3 minutes and 33 seconds to play 
Howie Landa committed a foul and 
the ice was broken. After the foul was 
made, Coach Marquette took out his 
first five to give the boys from Read- 
ing a chance to shorten the lead and 
save face. The final score ended up 

Prior to the last quarter it had been 
a rout for Lebanon Valley. Holding 
their big 6' 5" center Connie Dettling 
to one field goal, the Dutchmen, paced 
by Leon Miller, broke into the lead at 
the very first and were never headed. 
Miller, who scored 24 points, spearhead- 
ed the attack. Don Grider and Howie 
Landa were the only other Dutchmen 
in double figures with 11 and 10 points, 
respectively. Mike DePaul paced the 
Lions with 14 points. 

Champion College Hoopsters 
Outshoot Gettysburg Bullets 

A set shooting, double pivot Gettys- 
burg five tried unsuccessfully to put a 
kink in the Valley's bid for an un- 
defeated season. The game, hampered 
by arbitrary foul calling, proved the 
hardest court contest of the year for 
LVC. And only in the last two minutes 
of play were the Dutchmen assured of 

Presently the Valley remains one of 
six unbeaten teams in the country and 
has the distinction of being the only 
five with a clean slate in Pennsylvania. 

Utilizing a fast break, set shot of- 
fense combined with a sliding zone 
defense, Gettysburg in the first half of 
the initial quarter out shot the Valley 
and took a 16-12 lead. Only brilliant 
backboard work by Finkelstein prevent- 
ed the Bullets from doing any further 
damage in that frame. Even Larida's 
fast drive and Vought's six points could 
not hamper Gettysburg's style as the 
G-men led by Pizolota and Eckman 
sunk set after set. 

Playmaker Richie Furda kept Valley 
hopes alive by setting up offensive 
tactics for Vought and Landa. In the 
last four minutes of the quarter Herb 
Finkelstein broke a 21-21 tie with a 
foul shot, but the lead proved tem- 
porary as the Dutchmen could not 
maintain control of the ball and the 
first session ended with the Bullets lead- 
ing 25-24. 

Fouls Help G-burg 

Gettysburg came out strong in the 
second quarter with Pizolato, Lang and 
Habeeb shooting consistent sets. The 
height proved a difference in this 
quarter as the Bullets kept control of 
the backboards. Lou Sorrentino, re- 
placement for Richie Furda started the 
Valley fast breaking, but the team was 
slowed down by fouls. The Valley fans 
thinking the foul calling foul booed 
loudly. With the two Philadelphia aces, 
Landa and Finkelstein, each having 

four fouls, "Rinso" Marquette decided 
to rest his big men until the second 
half. Miller, Vought and Sorrentino 
combined their talents to keep Gettys- 
burg scoring to a minimum. However, 
the Bullets set artists, particularly John 
Habeeb, could not be stopped and fol- 
lowing Miller's after the whistle foul 
shot, the Dutchmen found themselves on 
the short end of a half time 41-38 lead. 
Valley Takes Over 

With renewed spirit the Valley with 
a lay up by Furda temporarily led 
43-42. The Bullets aided by the bucket 
shots of Snyder bounced back to take 
a precious four point lead. With Mil- 
ler and Vought under the basket for 
LV the lead changed hands several 
times. At the close of the third period 
Gettysburg had a 64-61 margin. 

The beginning of the final period 
found the Valley taking the lead 66-64. 
With the combination of Finkelstein 
of the backboards and Sorrentino of 
football fame driving, the Valley gradu- 
ally took command. Landa just en- 
tering the game with only six minutes 
left stole the ball, drove in for LV's 
79th point to G-burg's 78. Then after 
Snyder made his last shot of the eve- 
ning the Flying Dutchmen climaxed a 
furious battle with razzle dazzle bas- 
ketball. In the very last minute and a 
half Sorrentino stole the ball twice and 
Landa picked it up once as the Valley 
scored 10 points. Bill Vought scored 
his 23rd point, high for the night, and 
LVC went on to win 94-84. 

Freshman Lebanon Valley coach 
"Rinso" Marquette handled his team 
like an able veteran calling time outs 
at opportune moments and making re- 
placements that paid off. Although 
Gettysburg deserves credit for playing 
its finest game of the season, "Rinso" 
was able to get the best out of his men 
which sufficed for the Valley's 12 th 
straight win.

Bill Shoppell Speaks 
At Chicago Convention 

National head of FTA Bill Shoppell 
participated in the annual convention of 
the American Association of Colleges for 
Teacher Education in Chicago recently. 
"Accentuate the Positive" was the topic 
of his 25-minute speech at the business 
meeting on Friday afternoon, February 
13. Bill was introduced by Mrs. Wilda 
Freeborn Faust, national secretary of Fu- 
ture Teachers of America. In his address 
Bill accentuated the positive hopes of 
future teachers on the college, state, and 
national levels. 

The convention, which was held at the 
Congress Hotel, was attended by presi- 
dents of state teachers' colleges and the 
deans of education from all over the 
nation as well as others interested in the 
same field. Bill was the only student at 
the convention and one of the few Penn- 
sylvanians there. 

At an executive banquet of the Pitts- 
burgh branch of the Pennsylvania State 
Education Association on January 31, 
Bill Shoppell sang four numbers. The 
work of the teachers in the state was in- 
troduced to the businessmen, state con- 
gressmen and senators, and the governor 
who attended the banquet.

Dr. Campbell, Rev. Wilmore Guest Speakers 
For Religious Emphasis Week Programs 

Religious Emphasis Week will be observed on Lebanon Valley's campus 
March 2-5, marking the eighth consecutive year for this activity. With the ac- 
cent of specialization in the minds of so many people, this program has been 
designed to provide an opportunity for students and faculty to set apart one 
week to concentrate upon the spiritual values of life. The topic for the week 
will be "Invitation to Live," with sub-topics "In Personal Life," "In Campus 
Life," and "In Social Life." 

Principal speakers for the week will include Dr. E. Fay Campbell, Secretary 
of the Division of Higher Education of the Presbyterian Board of Christian 
Education. The duty of this board is to guide the church's relationship to its 
forty-five schools and colleges; thus Dr. Campbell's activities well fit him to 
speak to college students. The second main leader for the week will be the 
Reverend Gayraud S. Wilmore, Jr., Presbyterian representative to the integrated 
staff of the Student Christian Movement in the Middle Atlantic Region. Rev. 
Wilmore has traveled and spoken extensively in this region as an S. C. M. 
leader, and is well acquainted with young people's work. 

Local leaders for the week will in- 
clude the Reverend W. Miller Price, 
pastor of the Christ Evangelical and 
Reformed Church of Annville; the 
Reverend C. C. Hollingsworth, pastor 
of the Salem Evangelical United Breth- 
ren Church of Lebanon; the Reverend 
C. A. Chamberlain, pastor of the Palm 
Lutheran Church of Palmyra; the Rev- 
erend Paul E. Adair, pastor of St. 
Paul's Catholic Church of Annville; 
and Rabbi Alvin M. Poplack, rabbi of 
Beth Israel Synagogue of Lebanon. 

The program for the week will pro- 
vide opportunities for everyone. Chapel 
services are scheduled for 11 a.m., 
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. 
Dr. Campbell will speak twice at these 
services and Reverend Wilmore once. 
"Invitation to Live" is the general topic 
of their addresses. Meditation hours 
will be held each day in the college 
church. Dormitory sessions, a question 
and answer period in an informal dorm 
get-together, will be held this year as 

Seminars for students of various 
faiths will highlight the day Wednes- 
day. Rev. Wilmore will conduct the 
Protestant Seminar, Father Adair will 
speak to the Catholic group, and Rabbi 
Poplack will lead the discussion in the 
Jewish group. Student leaders for each 
of these programs have made neces- 
sary arrangements. 

Wednesday evening a faculty banquet 
will feature Reverend Wilmore as 
speaker and Professor Carl Y. Ehrhart 
presiding. Ministers from Pennsylvania 
and East Pennsylvania branches of the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church will 
be guests at the ministerial banquet 
Thursday evening. 

"The Lamb in the Window," a one- 
act play, will be given Thursday eve- 
ning at 7:30 p.m. in the college church 
a s the closing activity. The play will 
be presented by members of the Student 
Christian Association Cabinet and the 
Future Teachers of America. Dr. Gil- 
bert McKlveen, professor of Educa- 
tio n, will direct the production. A 
Worship service will also be held Wed- 
nesday evening. At both of these serv- 
lce s, devotional programs will be plan- 
ed and executed by students.

Native Frenchman 
Entertained By Club 

A native Frenchnman was the guest of 
the French Club at its January meeting 
at the home of Dr. Struble. The visitor 
led the group in an informal discussion 
on the subject of life in France. The 
gentleman, who was accompanied by Mr. 
Robert Davis, of Annville, at whose 
home he is temporarily residing, is a 
native Frenchman who will return to 
France upon the completion of his study 
of the American language and way of 

For the February program, the French 
Club played host to a group of interested 
professors and students at the showing 
of the film, Holiday in Paris, a short 
technicolor travelogue. Prior to the 
movie, a collection of travel folders and 
pamphlets was displayed. 

Students Urged 
to Donate Blood 

The giving of a pint of blood takes 
approximately one hour, which allows 
for the physical examination, the actual 
donation, and the rest and refreshment 
period afterwards. 

President Miller has stated that stu- 
dents participating in the program will 
be excused from classes if necessary. 
Two groups will go to Lebanon Tuesday 
afetrnoon, March 17, one at 1:15 p.m. 
to 2:30 p.m., and another from 3:15 p.m. 
to 4:30 p.m. Those in the first group will 
be excused from the one and two o'clock 
classes; the second group, from the three 
and four o'clock classes. The Red Cross 
will furnish transportation for those who 
wish it. 

The requirements are that you are be- 
tween 18 and 60 (those under 21 must 
have their parents' consent) weigh at 
least 110 pounds, and have no communi- 
cable diseases such as tuberculosis or 
jaundice, or anemia. You are, however, 
given an examination before being allow- 
ed to give. Medical authorities agree that 
there are no serious after effects and 
sanction up to five donations per year for 
those meeting requirements. 

In the four hour period before donat- 
ing, they advise that you take light re- 
freshment, such as fruit, fruit juices, 
bread, raw or boiled vegetables, skimmed 
milk, black coffee or tea, and jam, jelly, 
or honey, and that you avoid fats, meats, 
fried foods and eggs. Afterward they rec- 
mend the drinking of water and fruit 
juices and avoidance of strenuous activ- 
ity, such as swimming, basketball, or 
hours of dancing.

A Hearty Welcome 

The La Vie staff, speaking for the entire student body, extends a sincere 
word of welcome to approximately 185 high school students who will come to 
our campus this weekend to take the annual scholarship examinations. We 
hope, students, that you will enjoy your stay here and will find evidence of that 
spirit of friendliness which, we believe, is abundant on Lebanon Valley's campus. 

May we urge you to attend not only the tests and interviews, but also the 
extracurricular activities which have been planned for you. On Friday evening, 
our college orchestra will present a program in the Engle Hall auditorium. Fol- 
lowing this, a period of recreation will take place. If you are staying over- 
night in one of the dormitories, perhaps you can join in one of the frequent 
bull sessions which are held there. On Saturday, several tours have been ar- 
ranged to acquaint you with our campus. Finally, if you are free Saturday 
evening, perhaps you could arrange to see Lebanon Valley's championship bas- 
ketball team play Lincoln University in our new physical education building. 

If there are any questions or needs which arise during your stay, feel free 
to ask any member of our student body to help you. They will be only too 
glad to meet you or give you aid. 

As our final word, may we say "Lots of good luck!" in competing for 
the scholarships. However, whether you are one of the lucky ones or not, we 
hope that you will like our campus and will decide to make it your college 
home this fall. 

May we now say a few words of congratulations to Lebanon Valley's 
students for the interest displayed in the last meeting of the Student-Faculty 
Council. A large group of non-members attended the meeting and they, along 
with voting representatives, joined in a rational discussion. Too often we, as 
students, are guilty of a lot of griping with no positive action. Here is our 
chance to discuss our views and air our gripes. The Student-Faculty Council is 
our organ of representation. Perhaps it has been only a name to us before, 
but if we continue to display interest it will assume its rightful place, that of 
a powerful body of coordination between various student groups and also be- 
tween students and faculty. We will find that the administration is only too 
willing to hear us if we approach its members through this body or through 
personal interviews. 

Your Student Government 

The ninth regular meeting of the Student-Faculty Council was called to 
order by the president, Sam Yeagley, on Thursday; February 19, at 7:30 p. m., 
in room 16 of the Ad Building. 

The minutes were read and the correction that the Public Speaking course 
correct number is English 22 "was made. 

Dean Hays started off the official business by giving his reply to the re- 
commendation sent to him by the Council that the PA system be re-instated in 
the dining hall. He claimed that the PA system, as it is now, was meant to 
be an inter-office system and not an amplifier suitable for making audible an- 
nouncements in two dining rooms. He also stated that the past experience with 
the system resulted in a "hodge-podge of announcements." Following a debate 
concerning the re-instating of the system and its pros-and-cons, the motion to 
re-instate it for a trial period of two weeks was defeated and the discussion 

The motion was then made that the Council resolve itself into a com- 
mittee-of-the-whole to discuss the achievements of the F&M committee. Charlie 
Blaich gave the report. Discussion concerning the new proposed method of 
handling the scheduling of social events followed. The following conclusions 
were made: 

(1) That the administration dates, athletic schedule, traditional big week- 
ends (society dances, dramatic productions, and alumni days), and religious dates 
be submitted by this coming May 1. 

(2) That all other possible dates be submitted and placed on the calendar 
by Friday, May 15. This includes class and society meetings, rushing and 
pledging weeks, club meetings, Conserv and recital programs, and other mis- 
cellaneous events which can possibly be scheduled at this time in order to 
alleviate confusion, mistakes, and rush for dates — a condition which has resulted 
this past year. 

Other matters concerning the social calendar, including the publishing of the 
calendar in the L Book, the mailing of the calendar to all Alumni, students, 
and personnel of the College, prompt monthly distribution of the calendar via 
faculty mailboxes and central points on the campus instead of chapel distribu- 
tion, and, finally, a permanent committee of Student-Faculty Council members 
to be responsible for the creation and maintenance of the calendar (thus re- 
lieving the Dean of Students of the responsibility) were presented for approval. 
The motion that the recommendation to adopt the improvement program drawn 
up by the committee be submitted to Faculty for approval was made and passed. 

The Bookstore profits committee gave its report. Mr. Moyer told the 
committee that a report cannot be given because the store has not been in opera- 
tion for a full year. However, the charges are 20% over cost to defray the 
expenses of the store. Dean Hays backed this and other financial questions by 
a comparative report of the tuition costs at other schools. 

The suggestion was made and approved that all meetings of the Council 
be open to the Faculty and student body and that the notices of the meeting be 
placed in the chapel programs. 

The meeting was then adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Gail Edgar, Secretary 

Suits My Fancy 



With only a week of rehearsals re- 
maining, the K-D play, Goodbye, My 
Fancy, is shaping-up well under the ima- 
ginative touch of T. D. Keller. Mr. Keller 
seems to have chosen a cast which 
threatens to out-shine that of last year's 
K-D production, The Silver Whistle (who 
will ever forget it!). A good many of the 
Silver Whistlers have taken roles in 
G.M.F., and the most amazing transla- 
tion of all is that of Nancy Daugherty. 
During last year's performance she hid 
her talents behind the curtains, serving 
as a prompter. But this year she will 
"tread the boards" in the lead-role of 
Agatha Reed, the vigorous young Con- 
greeswoman who knows what she wants 
and how to get him as well. 

Miss Daugherty is a member of The 
Thespians, a national dramatic honor so- 
ciety, a fact which she has hidden admir- 
ably well, quite in keeping with her un- 
prepossessing and demure personality. 
March 6 brings the first test of her act- 
ing ability at L.V.C. 

Another newcomer to the K-D plays is 
Darlene Moyer. No stranger to L.V.C. 
theatre-goers, Miss Moyer projects her 
characteristic wistfulness into the figure 
of Ginny Merrill, confused and unhappy 
daughter of James Merrill, president of 
Good Hope College for Women. Paul 
Holligan portrays Merrill with a restrain- 
ed but secretly turbulent touch. There is 
no trace in Merrill of that nasal-toned 
old dreamer from The Silver Whistle, 
Mr. Cherry. 

Nancy Wolf enlivens the play with a 
pert, laugh-provoking performance as 
"Woody," Miss Reed's caustic secretary. 
Woody is the type of woman who has 
put more than one man in his place. 

The role of Matt Cole, Life reporter 
with an easy body and a hard head, is 
handled by Clair Kelly. Cole, a foil to 
Merrill, is swollen with his opinion of 
himself as a lover and man of the world, 
His pride is jolted when the conservative 
college president gives him a run for his 
money in their mutual pursuit of Miss 

A light touch is provided by Joan Na- 
poliello as the scatter-brain, Ellen, for- 
mer roommate of Miss Reed — partial to 
cocktails and totally blind to anything 
but the frivolities of life. 

For good measure, authoress Fay Ka- 
nin throws in several special character 
parts. Bernard Rightmyer plays Dr. Pitt, 
a physics professor who recites works 
of Walt Whitman to his classes; Julia 
Ulrich titters her way through the play 
as Professor Birdeshaw, an old maid who 
teaches Sex Hygiene; Barbara Ranck 
exhausts herself to a frazzle preparing 
for commencement exercises as Miss 
Shackleford, the pedantic alumnae secre- 
tary of Good Hope College; Bill Shop- 
pell is all pomposity and hot-air with a 
southern accent as the President of the 
Board of Trustees, Claude Griswold; Bob 
Wagner is Prof. Dingley, the timid bot- 
any instructor secretly in love with Miss 
Birdeshaw; Nancy Williams, Beverly 
Ross, Pat Newpher, Louise Loeper, and 
Shirley Heizmann are the man - crazy, 
stargazing, idol-worshiping college girls 
who throw their dormitory into a state 
of bedlam whenever they are not para- 
lyzed at the sight of some man. 

Sounds like too much for one play? 
See any similiarities between the people 
at Good Hope College and those at 
L.V.C.? Interested? The play will be 
presented on the sixth of March; the cur- 
tain rises at 8:15 p. m. Better come ear- 
ly for a good seat! 


Dear Diary 

We left the conserv on our annual glee club tour about 1:15 p.m. today 
(Sunday.) After arriving at Mount Joy, we discovered we had forgotten to 
pack the gowns. Mr. Carmean's trusty little auto was soon hustling along the 
road to Mount Joy to save the day. We tried to overcome the dismal weather 
by our enthusiastic singing (a lot of people sang solos which weren't printed 
on the program.) I was surprised to see Brogie playing the bass drum in 
"Rockin Chair." He must be practicing percussion instead of cello these days. 
I can still taste those delicious barbecues we had in the evening at Lancaster. 

Today is Monday and now we're at New Holland. We began practicing. 
"Down in the Valley" today (not that we're homesick or anything!) George 
Curfman is really turning out to be the comedian of the tour. Must be the 
twist you give to those stories, George. Allan Koppenhaver was versing Gerry 
Nichols in Shakespeare, I noticed. This is one case where love's labors Weren't 

Everybody was spending his money shopping today (Tuesday.) We're in 
Reading, of course. Nancy Wolf, Stan Vansant, and Ruth Evans are going to 
look mighty sharp in their new outfits. We sang for the students at Reading 
High this afternoon and for the public this evening at Wyomissing High School. 
Kenny Keiser was really improving his velocity tonight. He'll soon be going 
faster than sound. May Eshenbach's castanets broke and sent the orchestra in- 
to an uproar during "Carmen." I don't feel too well tonight — I ate too many 

Wednesday's here at last. George Seyfert looked very tired today. A 
birdie told me Tony Kiehner is a restless bed partner. We planned to eat at 
Hess Brothers' today, but Mr. John was there with his millinery display of 
spring hats and they couldn't accommodate us. Trying to get out of the store, 
Jo Bachman looked mighty strange climbing up a down escalator. Jane Mc- 
Murtrie did so want to eat that marshmallow sundae, but her host, trying to be 
kind, gave her the whipped cream instead. Most of us went to movies today. 

Another day and we're now in Philadelphia. The little boys, Cy Deitrich 
and Dick Besecker, couldn't resist the yo-yo's. We examined the six - mnnual 
organ in Wanamaker's. I sighed my name to the guest list right under a movie 
star's — gee! Dave Willoughbly and' Jo Bachman spent the afternoon in City 
Hall looking for the Liberty Bell. This was John Ralston's birthday — we gave 
him a big birthday card containing oodles of bunnies. Once again, congratula- 
tions on your seventeenth birthday, John. There seems to have been some 
black magic tonight — we might call Ht "The Mystery of Dick Besecker's Lost 
Gown." I wonder if John Ralston and Dick Hornberger really did have 
to sleep in coffins when they stayed overnight at the mortician's. 

Still in Philly and it's Friday. We saw lots of alumni — Dave Gockley* 
Betty Nell Gaskill, Betty Bakley, and others. I wonder what Kenny Ellis was- 
thinking about today when he made Bill Lutz drive forty blocks out of his 
way. I thought Kenny knew his way around his home town. All the seniors 
hope they won't get a teaching position in a junior high like Warren Harding, 
where the kids knock you down as they come out of assembly. Tonight was our 
best concert of the tour so far. The soloists were especially good. 

It's now Saturday night and I'm back at the good old dorm. It's all 'sort of 
hazy now, but I do remember that last concert. Just think, it was the last 
night Ruth Evans will knock us over as she passes us to the piano. Then 
there was the bus trip back. There was a regular warfare between Kingsley and 
Brown's truck and Dix's and Griffith's cars. But Bill Shoppell really broke all 
speed records to get back to West Hall before 12 o'clock. On the whole tour, 
Prof. Rutledge was a good sport in spite of all the carryings on. Well, the 
first thing I did when I got home was get out my old knit suit and air it. 
Must keep in the competition. Now I'm ready for bed. That hard old mattress 
sure looks good. 


In the previous edition of La Vie the editors stated that Miss Stagg and 
Mrs. Lecarpentier conducted their own radio show every Saturday evening over 
station WLBR. It is, however, only held the last Saturday of every month. 
This coming Saturday evening will be the second program and will feature Mr. 
Rovers, tenor. The time is 9:30 to 10 p. m. 


Congratulations go to Bruce and Elaine Baver on the recent arrival of 
their son, Wesley Allan. 

Man's Gift to Man 

Modern science has given man "wonder drugs;" but modern science has no 
substitute for human blood. This is a substance — a medicine and healer — which 
only you can give. 

The need for blood in time of peace is great; in war, tremendous — and ur- 
gent. In 1953 we need 5,000,000 pints of blood, as much as the peak need 
during World War II. 

There is no waste of any part of any pint of blood given. It is used fa r 
military and civilian defense as either whole blood or plasma. That which 
remains after the fractionation of the blood into plasma is processed into gam a 
globulin, the only known preventative of paralysis in polio victims, and into *» 
medicine for the treatment of hepatitis, a killing liver disease. 

Human blood — your blood — is needed on the battlefront, in the hospital, i° 
disaster areas, and in the laboratory. Human blood — your blood — can save lives* 
prevent paralysis, and give health to the ill. It is a power within your ability 
to give. Give to your nation and to humanity.

Lie Detector 
Demonstrated At 
Psych Club Meeting 

A demonstration and explanation of 
the lie detector machine was the main 
feature of the monthly meeting of the 
Psychology Club of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, Tuesday night, February 24. 

Willis R. Adams, personnel and inves- 
tigative consultant from Carlisle, was in 
charge of the demonstration which was 
held in the Administration Building of 
the College. He was assisted by James 
Lewis, of Palmyra, and Thelma McKin- 
istry, of Wilmerding, both members of 
the Psychology Club. 

Adams discussed the scientific princi- 
ples on which the lie detector is based, 
the psychological approach and tech- 
niques used, and some practical applica- 
tions of the machine in personnel work. 

A special agent with the Army's Coun- 
ter Intelligence Corps during World War 
II, Adams served as a civilian scientist 
with the Army's Scientific Investigation 
Laboratory prior to opening his own 
office in 1949. 

The following was seen on a menu in 
a Linton's Restaurant in Philadelphia: 
As you go through life in your struggle 

for self, and the world makes you 

king for a day, 
Just go to the mirror and look at that 

man, and see what he has to say. 
For it isn't your father, or mother, or 

wife whose judgment upon you must 


The fellow whose verdict counts most in 
your life is the one staring back 
from the glass. 

Some people may call you a straight- 
shooting chum, and think you're a 
wonderful guy, 

But the man in the mirror says you're 
only a bum if you can't look him 
straight in the eye. 

He's the one to please, never mind all 
the rest, for he's with you clear up 
to the end. 

And you've passed your most dangerous, 
difficult test, if the man in the glass 
is your friend. 

'52 Alumni Giving Fund 
Shows Great Increase 

The 1952 Annual Alumni Giving Fund 
was closed on December 31 with most 
gratifying results, both in the number 
of persons contributing and in the total 
amount of contributions received. John 
Charles Smith, alumni secretary, had 
charge of this drive. 

The 1952 Fund (which is applied to 
current operating expenditures) showed 
a tremendous increase over its 1951 
counterpart. The 416 alumni and friends 
contributing to the fund were almost 
double that of a year ago, while the total 
contribution of $10,448.50 more than 
tripled the amount received in 1951. 
The number of alumni contributing was 
better than 12% of the total alumni 
membership. The average gift for 1952 
was $25.12 as compared to $14.65 in the 
previous year. 

The Class of 1917 led all the other 
classes in total amount given with 
$1,170.00. Tops in the total number of 
contributors was the class of 1937 with 
27. Among the classes since 1902, the 
Class of 1910 led in the percentage of 
contributors with 69%. 

Several special gifts were received dur- 
ing the year. These gifts (which are 
not applied to current expenditures) were 
contributed for specific purposes — such 
as scholarships, special projects, student 
loan funds, memorial awards, etc. — and 
amounted to $21,004.00. 

Should Communists Be 
Allowed To Teach? 

Freshmen, Sophomores 
Plan Spring Weekend 

The Freshman and Sophomore classes 
in respective meetings have decided to 
join forces and present "Underclassman 
Weekend," April 24 and 25. In conjunc- 
tion with Wig and Buckle, the under- 
classmen will sponsor "Joan of Lorraine" 
for Friday night's entertainment. A dance 
is scheduled for Saturday evening. Com- 
mittees are being formed and work by 
both classes will commence next week.

The Place Where Students Congregate 
For a Bite to Eat In a Cheerful 

Brotherhood Service 
Held During Chapel 

A special Brotherhood Week service 
was observed by the faculty and students 
of Lebanon Valley College yesterday 
morning at the weekly Chapel Hour held 
in the College Church. 

Rabbi Alvin M. Poplack, spiritual 
leader of the Beth Israel Congregation, 
Lebanon, was the guest speaker. Rabbi 
Poplack spoke on the subject, "Brother- 
hood and Character." 

Students representing the Jewish, Ro- 
man Catholic, and Protestant faiths tooK 
part in the program. Participating stu- 
dents included Herbert Ely, of Cleona, 
who introduced Rabbi Poplack; Norman 
Blantz, Annville, who read the scripture; 
and James V. Allen, Cornwall, who read 
Governor Fine's Brotherhood Week pro- 

(ACP) — Students are overwhelmingly 
against members of the Communist par- 
ty teaching in the nations' colleges, but 
they're somewhat in favor of teaching 
jobs for former Communists. This was 
learned in a recent ACP National Poll 
of Student Opinion. 

Results of the first question — Do you 
think avowed Communist party members 
should be allowed on college faculties? 
— are as follows: 

Yes 9 per cent 

No 85 per cent 

No opinion ... 4 per cent 
Other 2 per cent 

The few students who say "yes" usu- 
aly qualify it. "Communist teachers 
should be advertised as such," says a 
junior at the University of Nebraska. But 
a sophomore in Law at Phoenix Col- 
lege, Ariz., says, "No, they should be 
shot down like dogs." 

"It would be," declares a coed at Trin- 
ity College, D. C, "like permitting gang- 
sters to teach high school boys; corrupt 
ideals would be instilled in their 
minds. . ." 

The second question was: Do you 
think that former members of the Com- 
munist party should be allowed on col- 
lege faculties? 

Here are the resutls: 

Yes 45 per cent 

No 39 per cent 

No opinion . . 9 per cent 

Other 7 per cent 

"College students are supposedly old 
enough to judge for themselves," says a 
senior in Education at the University of 

A freshman at California State Teach- 
ers' College, Pa., states, "I would like to 
hear lectures from a Communist, just 
for interest." She adds, "I am not a Com- 

Many students think former Commun- 
ists would be good teachers because, as 
one student puts it, "They would know 
both sides." 

An ACP survey last winter indicated 
that the majority of students were against 
loyalty oaths for college professors. The 
figures were: Approve, 39 per cent; dis- 
approve, 47 per cent. Seventy-three per 
cent of the graduate students disapprov- 

In the present survey, 60 per cent of 
the graduate students are in favor of col- 
lege teaching jobs for former Commun-

What are the future teachers of L. V. C. going to be like? Here's hoping 
there are no reports such as these, from the Michigan State Daily. 

Think Of The High Curve! 
According to an American Collegiate Press report, a professor at Turin 
University in Italy has been arrested on charges that he sold 1,800 copies of 
the questions he was planning to ask on examinations, before the exams were 
held. We could have used a service like that last term. Michigan State 

Teachers A Necessity? 
The Westminster Holcad (Pa.) thinks that it's "a fallacy" to believe that 
teachers aren't necessary. "Where would we get chaperones for our dances?" 
asks the Holcad. Latest reports have not revealed that the teachers hold an 
equally high opinion of students. 

Then there's this one from the Idaho Argonaut. 


The Daily Reveille, Lousiana State University, views the honor system there 
with a slightly jaundiced eye. "It seems," says the paper, "that the teachers 
have the honor and the students have the system.

What about the students? Are they going to be so lazy that they won't 
study but will resort to methods like these? 

Dream Studies Away 

If psychologists at Georgetown University are right, it may be possible for 
the next generation of students to study in their sleep. 

All one would need is a dormiphone — that is, a record player with an auto- 
matic repeating mechanism. It has a built-in loudspeaker, an under-pillow speak- 
er and an earpiece. 

The idea is that, while you sleep, the dormiphone repeats your algebra 
lesson to you through the night, grinding it into your sub-conscious. Aldous 
Huxley, in his book "Brave New World," had a similar idea which he called 

At this stage, though, the dormiphone isn't very helpful to students study- 
ing for examinations. The Georgetown scientists are experimenting with non- 
sense syllables, not Shakespeare. — Michigan State Daily 

Studentship: 10 Easy Gambits . . . 
Here are "10 Ways to Get Through College Without Even Trying," as 
written in Pageant magazine by Prof. Robert Tyson of Hunter College: 

jil. Bring the professor newspaper clippings dealing with his subject; bring 
in clippings at random. He thinks everything deals with his subject. 

2. Look alert. Take notes eagerly. If you look at your watch, don't 
stare at it unbelievingly and shake it. 

3. Nod frequently and murmer "How true!" To you, this seems exag- 
gerated. To him, it's quite objective. 

4. Sit in front, near him. (Applies only if you intend to stay awake) . . . 

5. Laugh at his jokes. You can tell. If he looks up from his notes and 
smiles expectantly, he has told a joke. 

6. Ask for outside reading. You don't have to read it. Just ask. 

7. If you must sleep, arrange to be called at the end of the hour. It 
creates an unfavorable impression if the rest of the class has left and you sit 
there alone, dozing. 

8. Be sure the book you read during the lectures looks like a book from 
the course. If you do math in psychology class and psychology in math class, 
match the books for size and color. 

9. Ask any questions you think he can answer. Conversely, avoid an- 
nouncing that you have found the answer to question he couldn't answer, and 
in your younger brother's second reader at that. 

10. Call attention to his writing. Produces an exquisitely pleasant experi- 
ence connected with you. If you know he's written a book or an article, ask 
in class if he wrote it.

Lebanon Valley Challenges F & M Tonight at Lancaster 

Blue and White Courtmen 
Conquer Moravian, 84-48 

Lebanon Valley scored one of their 
most lopsided victories here last Satur- 
day night as they swamped Moravian 
84-48. Leading 73-25 at the end of the 
third period, Coach "Rinso" Marquette 
took pity on the hapless Greyhounds and 
brought in his substitutes for the final 

It was just one of those nights. Mora- 
vian was completely outclassed by the 
powerful Dutchmen squad who shot out 
to an early 8-3 lead on baskets by Lan- 
da, Vought and Finkelstein. Herbie, who 
was to have his best night of the year, 
tossed up two more baskets in the first 
period to make the score 22-10 in favor 
of the Dutchmen when the period ended. 
From then on it was all Lebanon Val- 
ley. Fastbreaking the Greyhounds into 
complete confusion, the Dutchmen rack- 
ed up point after point while holding 
Moravian to a bare minimum. With Fin- 
kelstein and Landa leading the way, th; 
Valley led 41-18 at half-time and 73-25 
at the end of the third quarter, Moravian 
only scored one basket in the third quar- 
ter as they were held to seven points all 
told. Finally, in the last quarter, Mar- 
quette emptied his bench which gave 
Moravian an opportunity to turn the 
farce into some semblance of a basket- 
ball game. With Bernard Grawley and 
Charles Schaeffer leading the way, Mor- 
avian cut down Lebanon Valley's margin 
to 36 points at the end of the game. 
Herb Finkelstein was high man for the 
Dutchmen with 21 points while Howie 
Landa and Bill Vought were the only 
men in double figures scoring 15 points 
apiece. Grawley and Schaeffer were high 
for Moravian, scoring 10 and 8 points, 

In the first game the Moravian JV 
gained some consolation as they beat the 
little Dutchmen 59-49. Stroh and Gluntz 
were high for LV's JV's with 11 and 10 
points respectively.

Close Game Won 
By Millersville Girls 

In a very close basketball contest, a 
much improved Lebanon Valley girls' 
team lost to Millersville State Teachers 
College, 33-29, on Saturday, February 
21. High scorer for the home team was 
its captain, dynamic Janet Straw, with 
eighteen points. 

The speedy Dutch girls made the 
game a difficult and exciting one for 
their tall opponents, who specialized in 
throwing long shots from the outside of 
the basketball court and in jumping to 
obtain possession of the ball. The pace 
was nip and tuck throughout the game, 
with the half-time score 20-19. Though 
Millersville led by only one point then, it 
forged ahead to win with a final score of 

Lebanon Valley's junior varsity squad 
secured its first victory of the season by 
defeating Millersville, 19-17, that same 
afternoon. This game was also a very 
close contest. At half-time LVC was 
leading, 8-6. The JV team proved its 
ability by winning, 19-17. Right forward 
Naomi Sprenkle led the home team with 
eleven points.

Cagers Defeat E-town 
On Opponent's Court 

Bouncing back from their horrible loss 
to Albright, the Lebanon Valley basket- 
ball team scored a notable victory over 
the E-town College Blue Jays on the 
latter's floor, a feat that hadn't been 
accomplished in quite a few years. Pull- 
ing out to an early lead, the Dutchmen 
coasted home a 65-56 winner over a 
green Elizabethtown College team which 
seemed to have more difficulty scoring 
on their own floor than Lebanon Valley 

The Dutchmen got their only scare 
imday through the first period when, 
after grabbing a nine point lead early in 
the game, they saw it melt to nothing as 
the Blue Jays, sparked by Jack Bolten 
and George McCue, rallied to tie the 
score at 11-11. It seemed for a moment 
that E-town was going to make a fight 
of the game. However, with Vought, 
Landa and Furda hitting on all cylin- 
ders, the Dutchmen rallied from a slim 
14-12 lead at the end of the first quarter 
to a healthy 31-24 half-time lead. 

In the third quarter, the Dutchmen 
continued to roll. With Don Grider lead- 
ing the way, Lebanon Valley pulled out 
to a 14 point lead at the end of the third 
quarter, 51-37. 

In the fourth quarter with Jack Bolten 
sparking the way, the Blue Jays narrow- 
ed the score to its final nine point advan- 

This was a big game for Lebanon Val- 
ely to win. It renewed their confidence 
after the defeat at Albright, and it 
showed that the Dutchmen can win at 
Elizabethtown. The scoring on Lebanon 
Valley was equally divided between Don 
Grider and Richie Furda who had 13 
apiece, Howie Landa who had 12, and 
Bill Vought who hit for 11. Jack Bolten 
was high for the Blue Jays with 16.

JV's bowed to the Elizabethtown JV,

Tonight the Flying Dutchmen of Leb- 
anon Valley travel to Lancaster to face 
the rugged Diplomats of Franklin and 
Marshall in what may be their biggest 
game of the year. The Dutchmen, with 
a record of 15 wins and one loss, are 
being considered for the Middle Atlantic 
Conference entry in the NCAA tourna- 
ment: a tournament held every year at 
the close of the basketball season. This 
year the field consists of 23 teams includ- 
ing the champions of every major con- 
ference in the country and the outstand- 
ing independent teams. Lebanon Valley 
is one of the several teams under con- 
sideration for the post as is Franklin and 
Marshall. The winner of this game will 
undoubtedly be included in a tournament 
to decide who is selected. 

This assignment, however, will not be 
an easy one. The Diplomats are still 
smarting over the 80-70 loss handed to 
them here last year. The fact that they 
are playing on their home floor makes 
the Valley's job even more difficult. 
However, the Dutchmen have risen up 
under pressure before and there is no 
reason to doubt that they can do it 

Two men that the Dutchmen will have 
to watch tonight are Gus Lovitt, the Dip- 
lomats' 6'6" center and Walt Lenz a 6'4" 
forward. Both men are high scorers and 
if they have a good night against us, 
things will be very tough, indeed. How- 
ever, if the Dutchmen have a night such 
as they had last Saturday against Mora- 
vian, it's not hard to assume that Leba- 
non Valley will be in there fighting on 
March 9, the night that the NCAA tour- 
nament commences.

Lebanon Valley Girls' Team 
Drops Game to Lock Haven STC 

Lebanon Valley's girls' varsity basket- 
ball team played one of its best games of 
the season Tuesday afternoon, February 
24, against Lock Haven State Teachers 
College. Final score of this contest was 
52-40. Although beaten by twelve points, 
the girls did well, considering that then- 
opponents were all physical education 
majors from a school noted for its ath- 
letic department. 

At the end of the second quarter Lock 
Haven led with eleven points, the score- 
board reading 31-20. But the squad of 
Flying Dutchgirls did not allow this 
margin to increase as they continued to 
fight this superior team. 

Each of the varsity forwards for the 
home team were high scorers in Tues- 
day's game. Captain Janet Straw sunk 
nine field goals while Evelyn Eby added 

twelve points to the score and Irene 
Urian, ten. 


Lock Haven's junior varsity squad was 
victorious over the Blue and White JV, 
31-20. Halftime score was 25-10. 

Left forward Priscilla Thomas 1 e d 
LVC with eight points. Although all the 
squad members saw action in this con- 
test, only other scorers were Naomi 
Sprenkle, Sandra Nelson, and Beverly 

Remaining teams which Lebanon Val- 
ley will face in the next two weeks in- 
clude Gettysburg, Shippensburg, and Eli- 
zabethtown. The girls will journey to 
Shippensburg Friday afternoon, March 
6, and to E-town on Saturday, March 
14. The Gettysburg game will be played 
here Tuesday evening, March 10. 

Lebanon Valley dropped from the 
ranks of the unbeatables when they suf- 
fered their first defeat in thirteen success- 
ful attempts at the hands of the Albright 
Lions before a hungry-for-victory crowd 
of three thousand. 

Seeking revenge for their previous 74- 
49 loss by Lebanon Valley, the Albright 
Lions won a tasty victory by downing 
the Flying Dutchmen 82-74. 

Albright's impenetrable sliding zone 
defense proved the difference in the 
score. The Valley having to play con- 
trary to their fast breaking style had to 
rely on shooting from the outside. Lit- 
tle Richie Furda, with 14 points, was 
the only Dutchmen player to hit outside 
the keyhole with any degree of success. 

Mike DePaul, a freshman product of 
Eastern Military Academy, sparked the 
Lions with 23 points. Howie Landa, 
though double teamed all night and han- 
dicapped by a bad hand, was high with 
19 for the Valley. 

Albright coach Ed Gulian pulled a 
special Valentines' Day switch on LVC 
by playing without h i s first string 
throughout the first quarter. The strategy 
apparently paid off as the second string- 
ers sunk almost basket for basket and 
the score at the end of the first quarter 
stood Valley 19, Albright 14. During 
this first heated session LVC tried, but 
failed, to work out its best fast breaking 
plays and had to be satisfied in shooting 
from the outside. 

The second quarter found the Valley 
playing its best period of ball all evening 
and even the fresh Albright first stringers 
could not dent the Valley's style. The 
biggest contributing factor in Valley's 
drive was playmaker, set shot artist Rich- 
ie Furda as Richie with 4 consecutive 
sets virtually played a one man game. 
Mike DePaul, with alert defense and 
Conrad Dettling, deadly Albright center, 
were standouts for the Lions. The end 
of the first half found the Valley clinging 
tenaciously to a five point 37-32 lead. 

The third quarter set the precedent for 
the remainder of the game. Besides 
throwing the ball away on two occasions, 
the Dutchmen were unable to score for 
the first four minutes of play. And 
after the Blue and White took a time 
out Mike DePaul knotted the score at 

Following Sorrentino as a replacement 
for Furda, the lead changed hands a 
number of times. Finally Albright, aided 
by Nase, DePaul and Dettling, widened 
the gap at third quarter time 56-49. 

The Dutchmen grimly fought back 
and after Millers' two foul shots, the 
Valley led 71-69 with only three minutes 
remaining. However, pay dirt was not in 
sight and Alibrght went on to scere 12 
fast points to cinch matters for the night. 

Thus ended any Valley hopes for an 
undefeated season. However, the quintet 
will probably wind up the campaign with 
the best record in Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege basketball history and will undoubt- 
edly go down as the best spirited, best 
coached team. 

In the prelim the Junior edition set the 
pattern when they took it on the chin by 
their Albright rivals 57-33.

Louisiana State Eliminates Lebanon Valley 
in NCAA Tournment in Raleigh, N. C. 

Dutchmen Complete Best Season 
In History of LVC Basketball 

Although Lebanon Valley, in losing to the Tigers of Louisiana State Uni- 
versity, were stopped in their attempt to grab the NCAA title, certainly they lost 
no perstige, as was evidenced by the grand reception they received by the 7,500 
fans who witnessed the first round of playoffs for the Eastern Regional title of 
NCAA. Some 150 fans who made the trip to Raleigh inspired the team to 
near victory and the 89-76 score was not indicative of the type of contest it was. 
As a matter of fact in the words of Coach "Rinso" Marquette: "The boys gave 
them a game for thirty-five out of the forty minutes." 

At the outset the little, but mighty Dutchmen, a newly acquired pseudonym, 
had a couple of strikes against them. In the first place they lost their fifth 
man, Richie Furda. on a rule which in effect states that men who have played 
ball for four years are ineligible for tournament ball, and they also lost their 
standout set shot artist, Don Grider, who incidentally is the third man on 
the team over six foot. Secondly, the Dutchmen were outweighed and out- 
distanced as all-American Bob Pettit was easily able to control the boards, but 
even at that Leon Miller, (who was high for L. V. C. with 26) six inches Petit's 
junior, was able to stop Pettit's effectiveness. Thirdly, the refereeing was obvious- 
ly not in favor of Lebanon Valley since Joe Wilson a Southern Conference 
official proved invariably partial to LSU. It might be said the refs proved more 
effective against the Blue and White than did LSU. 

Lebanon Valley in playing LSU, one 
of the greatest teams in the country 
with a 22-1 record, at times appeared 
that they might complete their miracle 
by performing one of the greatest upsets 
in college basketball games. Even as 
late as the fourth quarter they were as 
close as three points. 

The Dutchmen led throughout most 
of the first quarter, at one point by 
four points. And after the Tigers 
moved ahead, Bill Vought with a one 
hander and Landa with a drive-in field 
goal knotted the score at 24-24. 

In the second quarter Magee and 
Belcher hit to give the Southerners a 
37-31 lead. Miller closed ranks with 
a peeper at 45-41. 

During the third session Pettit be- 
gan connecting, but Sorrentino with a 
jump shot and Leon Miller with a lay 
up had the Valley fighting back at 

After the Dutchmen came within 
three points, 64-61, in the final frame, 
Pettit broke the game wide open and 
LSU went on to break an NCAA re- 
cord by scoring 89 points. 

Bouquets for the Valley should first 
go to "Rinso" Marquette. "Rinso" has 
taken Lebanon Valley through its most 
successful basketball season and has 
literally put the team on the map. 
Looking in retrospect, after LVC had 
beaten Muhlenberg they had apparently

and LVC faculty. Refreshments of cake 
and coffee were served by members of 
the Future Teachers of America. 

Next meeting for LVC's chapter of 
FTA will be Tuesday, April 7, at 7:30 
p. m., in Philo Hall. At this meeting of- 
ficers for next year will be elected and 
business concerning the coming state 
convention will be taken care of. All 
members are urged to attend and to 
give serious thought to electing officers 
so that the Future Teachers of America

Flyin' High 

by Adora J. Rabiger 

"LSU, LSU, it's a shame you have to lose 

To the Dutchmen of old LVC 
We are brave, we are strong, and it won't be very long 

'Til we're rolling to old Kansas state: 
For it's victory for the men of LVC, 

Shout out your letters loud and strong! 


And where'er you go, you will always know 
That those Dutchmen are flying along. 

Keep them flyin' along! 
That those Dutchmen are flying along!" 

Singing this song, which they had written to the tune of "The Caissons Go 
Rolling Along," a group of Lebanon Valley basketball fans entered Raleigh, North 
Carolina on a chartered bus last Friday afternoon. Though the victory proclaimed 
in the song did not quite come true, the spirit in which the song was written Was 
maintained loyally thoughout LVC's participation in the NCAA tournament. 

The enthusiasm of Lebanon Valley College for its basketball team was best 
exemplified by the people on that red and white Trailways bus. Leaving Annvillc 
at 5 o'clock Friday morn, March 13, the group of twenty-eight had travelled a 
pleasant journey for almost twelve hours. Some of us spent the early morning hours 
sleeping; others,, singing; but by ten o'clock all were wide awake enough to view the 
Washington Monument, White House, Capitol Building and other items of national 
interest which our genial bus driver pointed out to us as we passed through Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

We knew we weren't the ony ones from Annville travelling South, for many 
more made the journey by car. John Grace and his buddies happened to pass us in 
Washington. Later we saw another grey coupe boasting an LVC sticker, but 
couldn't determine who the occupants were. 

Our enthusiasm was contagious too — in Bethesda, Maryland, we practiced 
cheering while eating breakfast at a Hot Shoppe. If the customers in that restaurant 
had never heard of LVC before, they surely wouldn't forget it after hearing Us. 

Continuing south on the Shirley Highway, the bus played "I pass you, you pass 
me," with a car driven by two sailors. Earlier in the morn we had played this game 
with a huge trailer truck hauling cranberry sauce, but the sport with the men in 
uniform pleased the girls in the bus more, especially Joan Napoliello and Shirley 
Heizmann. Louise Loeper even offered the fellows cookies one time we passed 
them, but they were going too fast to accept them. Meanwhile, some of the fellows 
were playing cards. Clyde Walters was so interested in the game that he sat on a 
suitcase in the aisle for a couple of hours in order to enjoy the game. Not to be 
forgotten is Lynn Sparks playing checkers on that "unspillable" checker board with 
Burton Hughes. 

When we stopped in South Hill, Virginia, for lunch, Aaron Shaeffer and Clar- 
ence Ulrich bought blue and white decorations. On the side of the bus they spelled 
LEBANON VALLEY COL with blue masking tape. (They would have spelled out 
"college" completely, but the tape ran out.) Also, they fastened blue and white 
streamers to each window. 

Sparked by Beverly Ross and Howard Ancell, the song writing began after We 
entered North Carolina. Not to be content with our old standbys, which we had 
practiced several times on our journey, we composed two new songs — the one 
printed above and this short one, sung to the tune of 'Reuben, Reuben." 

"Howie, Herb, and Sorrentino, 

Miller, Vought, and Rinso, too; 
We are all the Flying Dutchmen, 
Out to beat old LSU." 

Driving through Wake Forest, we opened all the windows and loudly sang 
our new songs to really let the Wake Forest Deacons know we were in town! By 
the time the bus reached Raleigh, it was really red, white, and blue; and the occu- 
pants were rann* to go and root for the home team. Fire crackers added excitement 
to the trip, for someone always remembered to set one off every time the bus 
stopped cause they're legal in N. C. 

Passengers on the bus stayed at either the Alamo Plaza Hotel Court outside 
of Raleigh or the YMCA in town. Although the latter was more convenient to the 
city, we will long remember the Alamo as a very modern and comfortable place to 
stay. Those Beauty Rest mattresses really felt good, and what did you think of 
tnose tricky air-conditioning fans over the lights? 

The spirit of "tiny Lebanon Valely" prevailed everywhere in the magnificent 
William Neal Reynolds Coliseum on the campus of North Carolina State College 
Friday night. The German band, including some alumni players, was there with its 
trademarks-its own special brand of peppy music, as well as those straw hats.

Dear Sir: 

Since I returned to active duty with 
the Army, I have continued to think of 
the student body at LVC, particularly in 
the science departments. I have often 
wished for a way in which I might still 
contribute in some small way to their ed- 
ucation. Recently I have had the oppor- 
tunity of reviewing certain scientific arti- 
cles which had been declassified and de- 
cided to forward one of the more inter- 
esting articles to you for general publi- 
cation, if you so desire. I have, there- 
fore, attached a copy of one such article. 
To avoid any possibility of altering the 
original meaning, it is presented in the 
original German. 

My sincerest regards to all, and I trust 
my contribution may prove enlightening. 
Sincerely yours,

The Place Where Students Congregate 
For a Bite to Eat In a Cheerful 


Shakespeare has been sadly satirized. 
Here are a few more to add to the list, 
from The Susquehanna and Tan and 

To flunk, or not to flunk: that is the 

Whether it is justifiable in this institution 
to suffer 

The wrath and ridicule of outrageous 

Or to take arms against the administra- 

And by using water pistols annihilate 

To strike, to cut; 

No more; and by cutting we say we end 
The torture and the thousand unearthly 

That college is heir to, 'tis a reformation 
Devoutly to be wished. To strike, to cut; 
To cut: perchance to exceed ten: ay, 
there's the rub. 


From the Minnestota Daily comes 
proof that Shakespeare's writings can ap- 
ply to just about anything. Here's what 
that talented gent had to say about ex-

Music on April 16 and 17, 1953. Pro- 
fessor Edward Rutledge will direct the 
entire festival. On the first evening, the 
chorus of one hundred twenty-five voices, 
an orchestra of twenty-five pieces, and 
outside soloists will render Brahms' 
Requiem. On the following evening, the 
glee club and concert band will perform 
in a combined concert. Their program 
will be announced at a later date. 

On Monday, March 23, the Robert 
Shaw Chorale and Orchestra, a company 
of fifty, will be guest performers at Leb- 
anon High School in the Community 
Concert series. Announcements of the

Speaking of great men, here is what 
Einstein has to say about prejudice: 

Einstein, the somewhat famed scientist, 
gave a pretty good view of the elasticty 
of prejudice, when he said as he was 
speaking of his theory of relativity . . . 
"If my theory is proved correct, Ger- 
many will hail me as a great German 
and the French will hail me as a citizen 
of the world. If it is proved false, the 
French will call me a German and the 
Germans will call me a Jew." 

— from The Sandburr 
While we are on the subject of preju- 
dice, here is some food for thought, too, 
from York College: 

One man wrote a poem: 
How odd 
Of God 
To choose 

The Jews. — W. N. Ewer. 
Another man wrote the answer. 
But not so odd 
As those who choose 
A Jewish God 
Yet spurn the Jews. 

— Cecil Browne. 
Christians often are liable to be un- 
fair, too. We often have an aversion to 
association with sinners. We should re- 
member that the first person who saw the 
resurrected Jesus had once been a pros- 

A little miscellaneous piece from The 
Albrightian will bring back memories: 
And here's a classical type poem about 
referees based on Joyce Kilmer's "Trees," 
written by Larry Newman, of Otterbehu 
I think that I shall never see 
A satisfactory referee. 
About whose head a halo shines 
Whose merits rate reporters lines, 
One who calls them as they are 
And not as I should wish, by far. 
A gent who leans not either way 
But lets the boys decide the play, 
A guy who'll sting the coach who yaps 
From Siwash High to old Millsaps. 
Poems are made by fools like me 
But only God could referee.

LSU GAME, from page 1 

reached their peak, and to the experts 
F&M presented an impossible task, but 
after taking the Diplomats handily, the 
Little Men went on to greater heights 
by topping Fordham and by 13 points 
to boot. In taking his team through 
this the greatest of seasons, Mr. Mar- 
quette has won the respect of every one 
of his ballplayers, and without his con- 
stant encouragement these victories 
would have been an improbability. 

Teamwork is the best word to de- 
scribe the Lebanon Valley team. A 
star can not be pointed out, but rather 
five stars working in harmony. Bill 
Vought, Richie Furda, and Leon Miller, 
playing in their last games for the 
Valley, have left an indelible mark in 
the LVC annals. 
Next year three of the big six are 
returning; namely, Lou Sorrentino, 
sixth man who added the necessary 
drive, Howie Landa, honorable mention 
(and some observers beileve he should 
be on the first team) for All-State, and 
Herb Finkelstein, one of the greatest 
floor players in the game today. Don 
Grider will also be returning as will 
Howie Kosier and Bob Blakney. Per- 
haps next year these players will be 
able to take on all comers and do just 
as sucessful a job as did the memorable 
team of '53.

Chemistry Club 
Sponsors Radio Program 

The Chemistry Club has been sponsor- 
ing a radio program on alternate Mon- 
days at nine o'clock p.m. over radio sta- 
tion WLBR. Its purpose has been to ac- 
quaint the general public with some of 
the startling advances in the field of 
chemistry and other related sciences in 
language that the layman can under- 
stand. These programs are of interest 
not only to science majors, but to every- 
one. Here are some of the subjects in- 
cluded in the program to be given on the 
30th of this month: a new process has 
been devised to obtain gasoline from 
coal, thus giving us a new source for this 
valuable fuel; the much talked about sili- 
cones are being used as a medicine ;there 
is also a discussion as to why DDT does 
not affect some flies. These items should 
show that this program is of interest to 
all in this day of science; students are 
encouraged to listen on alternate Mon- 
day evenings at nine. 

No! Now wait! WAIT ! I said let's go STUDY! Not STEADY! 

FLYIN' HIGH, from page 2 

work. We can rightly be proud of the 
team's performance as well as of the 
sportsmanship displayed on the court at 
Raleigh. The German band ended the 
evening on the right note with a rousing 
number, "The Lebanon Valley Fight 

Although Saturday night's game did 
not equal the previous night's perform- 
ance, the spirit of Lebanon Valley per- 
sisted despite defeat. Especially to be 
commended are the efforts of the Ger 
man band to impart more "fight" to the 
team and to the spectators. Recalling the 
game as viewed from the bleachers high 
above the Coliseum court that evening, 
one remembers the brilliant plays by 
Valley's men, the German band and the 
cheerleaders' performances, and the Holy 
Cross rooting section full of loyal Cru- 
saders cheering for their Northern col- 

Saturday was sight-seeing day for many 
of the folks from Pennsylvania. And a 
lot were there from Pennsy, too! Every 
other street corner you were almost sure 
to see a familiar face. For example, in 
front of Hotel Raleigh we met at least a 
dozen of our classmates at one time. 

Visiting the state capitol at Raleigh we 
were impressed with its size — three of 
their capitols would fit into ours at Har- 
risburg! Still, is seemed just right for 
that southern city. And the capitol 
square was very pretty, especially with 
forsythia and wild cherry in bloom and 
squirrels playing on the green grass. 
They have lots of pigeons down South, 

We discovered that some Valley fel- 
lows were touring other places of inter- 
est. Those who traversed the large cam- 
pus of N. C. State were impressed with 
the great conglomeration of brick build- 
ings, all sizes and shapes, as well as the 
fact that this college of agriculture and 
engineering boasts only 47 co-eds. Duke 
University's magnificent buildings and 
beautifully - landscaped campus really 
overwhemed the Northerners. Maybe 
they found more Southern belles there, 

Coming back on the Trailways bus, the 
trip was rather uneventful, since most of 
the passengers were sleepy. We rode from 
12:30 a.m. until noon Sunday. "Rev." 
Ross Fasick was scheduled to deliver a 
sermon about 10:30, and Ruth McFar- 
land had planned for everyone on the 
bus to participate; but Ross called off 
his sermon, because of rain. The chatter 
on the bus was an odd mixture of ac- 
cents — affected Southern drawls and 
genuine Pennsylvania Dutch. 

Many interesting tales were related 
of escapades down South and experiences 
were exchanged after we returned home. 
But there's one experience we would 
never trade for anything — our trip to 
Raleigh — and one escapade which we'll 
never forget — the Flying Dutchmen's 
grand performance in the NCAA tourna- 
ment! They really deserved the enthusi- 
astic praise they have received — for flyin' 
so high! 


to be sure of getting home 
as planned . . . and getting 
back promptly after vaca- 
tion... in a comfortable, de- 
pendable train. And you can be 
equally sure of vacation fun . . . 
traveling with your friends . . . 
enjoying swell dining-car meals 
. . . with lots of room to roam 
around and visit. 


You and two or more of 
your friends can each 
save 25% of regular 
round-trip coach fares 
by making the trip home and 
back together on Group Plan 
tickets. These tickets are good 
generally between points more 
than 100 miles apart. 

Or, gather 25 or more head- 
ing home at the same time in 
the same direction. You each 
save up to 28%, even if you re- 
turn separately. 



Miss Gillespie Speaks 
On Teaching Music 

Miss Mary Gillespie, director of the 
Conservatory of Music, represented the 
college music department on two occa- 
sions recently. On Tuesday, March 17, 
she acted as consultant for the program, 
"The Teacher Examines the Music Pro- 
gram," at the Lebanon City Teachers' 
Association Workshop which was held at 
Lebanon High School. The workshop 
was for elementary and junior high 
school teachers. 

At the Schuylkill Haven High School 
on Career Day, Thursday, March 19, 
Miss Gillespie represented those in the 
career of music at a series of lectures 
sponsored by the Rotary Club of that 
town. Other professions were discussed 
by those in various fields.

LVC Drops Game to Wake Forest 
in Consolation Contest at N. C. State 

Dutchmen Defeat F&M 
To Win NCAA Berth 

Entering the game as a 10 point un- 
derdog, the mighty midgets of LVC 
routed a highly touted Franklin and 
Marshall team 80-66, and won their 
overdue right to compete in the NCAA 
tournament representing the Middle 
Atlantic Conference teams. 

Lovett, though scoring 18 points, 
was not able to do his customary dam- 
age, being double teamed all night and 
fouling out late in the last quarter. 

The Valley wasn't able to get their 
attack rolling until the last two ses- 
sions and went into the second half 
with 8 point deficit. But a full court 
press confused the Diplomats in the 
second half and the Flying Dutchmen 
ran rings around their larger rivals. 

Standouts for LVC were Howie Lan- 
da with 17, Leon Miller with 21, and 
Herb Finkelstein with 17, who by the 
way scored 13 of those 17 in the last 
two sessions. 


After a 14 to 14 tie midway through 
the first quarter, Leon Miller convert- 
ed a free throw to give the Valley a 
temporary 15 to 14 lead. Then F&M, 
sparked by the hooks and lay ups of 
Gus Lovett, forged out in front at the 
end of the first quarter 21-19. 

In the second session Lovett virtual- 
ly played a one man game and this 
frame the Diplomats took a command- 
ing 42-34 lead. 


Aided by the drives of Lou Sorren- 
tino and the lay up of Leon Miller, the 
Valley fought gamely back and com- 
pletely outclassed the Marshall Diplo- 
mats. Finkelstein stretched the Valley 
lead to 49-46, then after Miller sank 
three successive fouls and Grider sank 
his lone field of the evening, the 
Dutchmen opened the game 57-50. At 
the end of third quarter the score read 
Dutchmen 58, Diplomats 51. 

However, after Howie Landa sank a 
nifty set, the Diplomats led by 6 foot 
7 Lovett, closed ranks at 60-58. Bill 
Vought sank a few of his dead one 
hand stabs; Finkelstein went under the 
basket making miraculous shots; Miller 
drove in for six more; and the mighty 
little men of Lebanon Valley put on a 
show for the fans — stealing the ball, 
fast breaking, pressing at full court 
plus outstanding teamwork. The boys 
called it a night's work at 80-66 and 
Lebanon Valley continued to surprise 
the experts with victory after victory. 

In the preliminary game the Frank- 
lin and Marshall Diplomats easily 
trounced the junior edition of the LV 
squad 54-34.

Closing out their most successful bas- 
ketball season of all time, Lebanon Val- 
ley tried valiantly to succeed against big 
time competition, but the powerful Wake 
Forest Deacons, champions of the South- 
eastern Conference, were too much for 
them. The Dutchmen, eliminated by 
Louisiana State University the night 
before, were never able to get started in 
their consolation game against the tall 
sharp-shooting Southerners. With big 
(6'6") Dick Hemric and setshooting Jack 
Williams showing the way, Wake Forest 
shot out to a 26-15 lead at the end of the 
first quarter, lengthened it to twenty 
points at half-time, 49-29, staved off a 
last ditch rally by the Dutchmen in the 
third quarter, and romped home with a 
twenty point margin to spare, 91-71. 
The Deacons used a zone defense against 
Lebanon Valley, which forced the 
Dutchmen to shoot from outside, where 
they were able to score very little. With 
big Hemric controlling both backboards, 
Lebanon Valley was comparatively help- 

For Wake Forest, Dick Hemric was 
high scorer with 29 points, and Jack 
Williams was a close second with 23. 
Herb Finkelstein was high for the Valley 
with 18 points. 

Though losing these two tournament 
games, the Dutchmen had made a good 
showing. The teams that they played at 
Raleigh were the champions of their con- 
ferences and two of the most powerful 
school teams in the nation. Even though 
the losers, Lebanon Valley, the "senti- 
mental favorites," gained national notice 
and publicity by their spirited play.

Basketball Play Day 
Held In L.V.C. Gym 

High schools in Lebanon County par- 
ticipated in a basketball play day for 
girls in the Lynch Memorial Physical 
Education Building here at Lebanon Val- 
ley College on Thursday afternoon, 
March 5. Twelve schools were represent- 
ed in this annual play day, which was 
held at Lebanon Valley last year also. 
Each school entered two teams into the 
play day. 

Juniata, Dickinson Surrender 
on Home Courts to Valley Five 

In the closest game Lebanon Valley 
had all season, the Dutchmen eked out 
an 83-81 victory over the scrappy In- 
dians of Juniata at Huntingdon. Trailing 
66-43 at the end of the third quarter, 
Junitata put on an amazing exhibition 
of shooting with Jake Handzelek and 
Dave Pollack scorching the cords in that 
final stanza. With Herb Finkelstein out 
on personal fouls and the rest of the 
team in danger, the Dutchmen had to 
play it safe and let Juniata shoot. 
This almost spelled disaster, for with the 
score 83-81 and only seconds remaining, 
the Dutchmen lost the ball out of 
bounds. Pollack took it and shot. He 
missed, however, and the Valley was 

Prior to the last quarter the Dutchmen 
had an easy time of it. With Bill Vought, 
Leon Miller and Howie Landa setting 
the pace, the Dutchmen breezed along 
leading 20-16 at the end of the first 
quarter, 41-33 at half time and 66-43 
after three periods. Leon Miller was 
high man with 19 points, while Vought 
and Landa followed with 18 and 17 re- 
spectively. Jake Handelek racked up 30 
points for the losers. 

In the first game the Juniata J.V.'s 
slaughtered the Little Dutchmen 94-59. 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutchmen 
wound up their regular season by 
nosing out an unexpectedly strong 
Dickinson five. Their final record of 
19-1 establishes them as the best team 
in Lebanon Valley's history. 

The Red Devils, however, gave the 
Dutchmen unprepared trouble, and only 
a third period splurge enabled the Blue 
and White to come out on the long 
end. Dickinson played their. finest game 
of the season while the Valley was 
exceptionally poor on their foul shoot- 
ing making only 25 for 52. Miller and 
Landa with 18 and 17 respectively were 
high for the evening and Huber of 
Dickinson cracked the double figures 
at 13. 

For two quarters the Valley trailed, 
and the half ended with Dickinson lead- 
ing 35-26. Then the Valley began their 
usual fast breaking third and, sparked 
defensively by Finkelstein, racked up 
22 points in the third quarter and 
added 17 in the last frame to Dickin- 
son's 19 point total for the two last 

Thus the Valley went through a sea- 
son marred by only one heart breaking 
defeat by the hands of Albright. 

G'burg, Shippensburg 
Defeat Valley Girls 

The girls' basketball team suffered 
defeat twice this month when it was 
beaten by Shippensburg, in an away 
game on Friday, March 6, and by 
Gettysburg, in a home contest on Tues- 
day, March 10. Remaining on the 
schedule for Lebanon Valley's girls was 
an away game with Elizabethtown Wed- 

Battling against teams superior in 
height and shooting ability, the Blue 
and White girls had difficulty in equal- 
ling their opponents in scoring baskets. 
Shippensburg scored 47 points and LVC 
only 21 in the contest at that state 
teachers college. The JV team also 
lost, 34 to 16. Final score of the 
Gettysburg game was 56-20. Gettys- 
burg's undefeated JV team completely 
conquered Valley's JV squad with a 
score of 60-4. 

Playing varsity basketball this sea- 
son for Lebanon Valley were Evelyn 
Eby, Janet Straw, and Irene Urian as 
forwards and Rosie Hollinger, Shirley 
Schaeffer, and Mary Lou Young as 
guards. Junior varsity players in- 
cluded Emily Clements, Gail Edgar, 
Ruthanne Kelchner, Peggy Martin, San-

Marquette's Men Down 
Tall Lincoln Quintet 

Fresh from their appointment to repre- 
sent the Middle Atlantic conference in 
the NCAA, the Flying Dutchmen of 
Lebanon Valley walloped Lincoln Uni- 
versity, 102-79, in a sloppy game. Mark- 
ed by loose floor play, especially on the 
Valley's part, the game started out to be 
a close one. For a team that had not 
won many games this season, Lincoln 
started off as if it were going to spring a 
big upset. The men from Lincoln match- 
ed the Dutcmen point for point during 
most of the first quarter as Tom Miller 
or Jonas Cowles would stay back and 
wait for their teammates to get the ball 
and throw it down to them under the 
basket where they would drive in for 
easy lap-ups. The Dutchmen, annoyed at 
such basket-hanging tactics, struck back. 
With Leon Miller and Bill Vought 
throwing in the most baskets, the Dutch- 
men finally went out in front at the end 
of the first quarter, 24-18. They increas- 
ed their lead to 51-45 at the half and ir. 
the second half with Landa, Finkelstein, 
Miller, and Vought hitting on all fours, 
the Dutchmen pulled out to a comfort- 
able advantage, leading 84-50 at the end 
of the third quarter. In the final stanza 
with most of the regulars out of the 
game, the second string went all out to 
hit the century mark. This was finally 
achieved for the third time this year 
as Jim Handley sank a set shot in the 
closing minutes of the contest. 

High for Lebanon Valley was Leon 
Miller with 25. Herb Finkelstein and 
Bill Vought each had 20 while Jonas 
Cowles scored 20 for the losers. 

In the first game Hershey Junior Col- 
lege beat LVC's JV team, 40-35. Chet 
Stroh was high for the Little Ducthmen 
with 11 points. 

Probably the greatest victory ever 
achieved by a Lebanon Valley basketball 
team occurred at the Palestra in Phila- 
delphia, where the Flying Dutchmen out- 
played and outhustled a taller Fordham 
team 80-67. Faking and driving all night 
against Fordham's man to man defense, 
the Valley battled on even terms with 
the Rams in the first half, then put a 
a burst of speed to win going away. 

In the first quarter of the game, Leba- 
non Valley's only poor one, the team 
seemed tight and nervous, throwing away 
numerous scoring opportunities. Ford- 
ham, led by Dan Lyons, Allen Larkin 
and Ed Conlin, built up an 18-13 lead 
shortly before the end of the first quar- 
ter. Then, with the buzzer sounding, Lou 
Sorrentino threw in a set from mid court 
to cut the lead at the end of the quarter 
to three points. In the second quarter 
Howard Landa and Lou Sorrentino con- 
tinued their phenomenal point getting as 
they tied the score at half time 32-32. 
The most amazing thing about the first 
half was that Fordham hadn't made one 
foul shot. Lebanon Valley had commit- 
ted only three fouls in the first half and 
the Rams had missed all their chances to 
score from the foul line. 

In the third quarter, the Dutchmen 
started off with a rush, Bill Vought and 
Leon Miller getting into the act with two 
baskets apiece before Fordham could 
start moving. From this point on Leba- 
non Valley was never headed. Fordham, 
with Conim, Cunningham, and Larken 
the chief scorers, tried to catch up, but 
their shooting was way off. The third 
quarter ended with Lebanon Valley lead- 
ing 53-49. The last quarter was an epic 
of frustration for the Rams. At one 
point they pulled to within three points 
of the Dutchmen only to see Lebanon 
Valley widen it again as Lou Sorrentino 
continued to hit from the floor and the 
foul line. Towards the end of the game, 
Fordham, finally realizing this wasn't 
just a stopping off place on the way to 
Raleigh, put on a desperation all court 
press. The Valley ran wild after that, 
scoring at will after taking the ball time 
after time from the demoralized Rams. 

This victory put Lebanon Valley into 
the regionals at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
an honor that vaulted the Dutchmen into 
the national spotlight.

Annual Religion and Life Lectureship 
series on Tuesday, April 14, at Lebanon 
Valley College. Dr. Moseley, who is an 
extremely outstanding leader in church 
and civic work, addressed the student 
body at the weekly chapel hour at 11 
a.m. on the subject, "The Basis of Broth- 
erhood." At noontime, he was an inter- 
view guest of Radio Station WHBG in 

Student chats were held with the guest 
speaker at 3 and 4 o'clock in the after- 
noon. Following dinner at North Hall, 
Dr. Moseley led a community forum for 
business and professional leaders of Ann- 
ville and vicinity in a discussion on the 
subject, "Call the Witnesses!" The forum 
was held at Faculty House. 

Dr. Moseley, who was born in Dallas 
County, Alabama, received his B.A. de- 
gree from Wake Forest College in North 
Carolina; he was awarded the Th.M. de- 
gree from Southern Baptist Theological

"A teacher must know the structure of 
the school system in which he is employ- 
ed, just as a minister must be aware of 
the organization of his church, in order 
to really do a good job in his profes- 
sion," declared the Reverend Harry T. 
Richwine, pastor of Annville's First Ev- 
angelical Lutheran Church, in emphasiz- 
ing the importance of a well-informed 
teacher. "For example, he should keep 
abreast of changes in his state's school 
code," explained Rev. Richwine to a LA 
VIE reporter in a recent interview. 

Rev. Richwine is well-qualified to ad- 
dress Pennsylvania's Future Teachers of 
America, for he is an active member of 
Annville's School Board as well as the 
Annville PTA and other civic organiza- 
tions. At the FTA banquet tomorrow 
night, Rev. Richwine will speak to pro- 
spective teachers from the viewpoint of a 
school board member. 

Active in Civic and Church Affairs 

Rev. Richwine, who was raised in Har- 
risburg, is an alumnus of Gettysburg Col- 
lege. Upon graduation from college, 
where he majored in history, Rev. Rich- 
wine attended the Lutheran Theological 
Seminary at Gettysburg. He has been a 
minister in Annville since 1941. Rev. 
Richwine is president of the Harrisburg 
district of the Central Pennsylvania Sy- 
nod of the United Lutheran Church in 
America. The National Lutheran Coun-

To FTA convention delegates from the 
Pittsburgh area, Dr. McKlveen may al- 
ready be a familiar figure, for he spent 
several years teaching in that area before 
coming to Annville in 1949. 

A native of Greensburg, Dr. McKlveen 
was an elementary teacher in Hunting- 
don, a senior high teacher in Dormont, 
and served as principal of the combined 
elementary-junior high school in North 
Irwin. Also, he was principal of Sewick- 
ley High School in Herminie. 

Obtains Master's Degree From Pitt 

Dr. McKlveen, who will deliver the 
keynote address of the convention on 
Friday afternoon, is the head of the 
education department here at LVC. A 
graduate of Juniata, where he majored in 
history. Dr. McKlveen received both his 
masters' and doctors' degrees in educa- 
tion from the University of Pittsburgh. 

In the classroom he stresses the activ- 
ity approach to teaching. For example, 
his visual aids classes have presented 
puppet shows, given TV programs, and 
utilized tape recordings on various occa- 

Few people at Lebanon Valley are

Glee Club Entertains 

Nominations for next year's officers 
will be included among the business of 
this session. Greetings will also be 
given by Barbara Ranck, newly-elected 
FTA president of the host chapter, and 
special music will be presented by the 
Lebanon Valley College Glee Club, un- 
der the direction of Edward P. Rut- 
ledge, of the Conservatory of Music. 

Selections by the Glee Club will in- 
clude "Alleluia, Glorious is Thy Name " 
by Robert G. Olsen, the spirituals 
Rock-a My Soul" and "Set Down, 
Servant," Jerome Kern's "All the Things 
You Are," and the Chechoslovakian 
folk song, "Walking at Night." The 
orchestra will accompany the Glee Club 
when it sings Hoagy Carmichael's 
"Rockin' Chair" and the Warren-Gear- 
hart composition "God of Our Fathers." 
Registration in Lynch Memorial 
Actually, luncheon at noon in the 
Evangelical United Brethren Church is 
the convention's first scheduled event. 
Delegates may register between 12 noon 
and 2 p.m. Friday at the Lynch Me- 
morial Physical Education Building, con- 
vention headquarters. Later in the after- 
noon a tea will be held in the Lynch 
Memorial's auxiliary gymnasium from 
4 to 4:30 p.m. "Pictorial Review of 
a Year with FTA" is scheduled to be 
shown at the classroom in Lynch Me- 
morial at 4:30 p.m. Here twenty-five 
colored slides accompanied by narra- 
tion will portray the activities of Leb- 
anon Valley's FTA chapter during the 
last year. 

The college church will also be the 
scene of a banquet at 6 o'clock Friday 
evening. Principal speaker will be 
Rev. Harry T. Richwine, minister of 
Annville's First Evangelical Lutheran 
Church. Convention delegates may 
spend the evening at either the dance 
in the Lynch Memorial, from 8:30 to 
11:30 p.m. or at the Music Festival 
given by the Lebanon Valley Band and 
Glee Club, which begins at 8 o'clock 
in Engle Hall. 

Jo Rosenberry Stars 
In Wig & Buckle's 
"Joan of Lorraine" 

Joan Rosenberry will portray the 
leading character in Joan of Lorraine, 
a play in two acts by Maxwell Ander- 
son, which will be presented in Engle 
Hall on Thursday night, April 23, at 
8:15 p.m., by the Wig and Buckle Club, 
campus dramatic organization. Dr. 
Charles Sloca, the club's advisor, will 
direct the production, which is being 
sponsored by the freshmen and sopho- 
more classes in conjunction with Under- 
classmen Weekend, April 23 and 24. 
Friday evening's activity i n the week- 
end schedule will be a dance in the 
auxiliary gymnasium. 

Joan of Lorraine is a play within a 
play. A play about the life of Joan 
of Lorraine is being rehearsed for pro- 
duction. Masters, the director, and Mary 
Grey, who plays Joan, are the main 
characters. They differ in their in- 
terpretation of what the play they are 
rehearsing should mean. Mary thinks 
Joan is not given fair treatment in the 
hnes of the play; Masters disagrees. 
Between scenes on this one particular 
day, the argument becomes quite heated. 
Until lt ls resolved to the satisfaction 
of both parties, the other members of 
the cast are not sure the play will ever 
reach its opening night. 

Miss Rosenberry, who will do the 
part of Mary Grey (Joan) is well 
known for her dramatic talent on L V 's 
campus. President of the Wig and 
Buckle Club, she appeared in several of 
that organization's productions: as the 
doting mother in The Glass Menagerie, 
and "an old lady who knits" in The 
Beautiful People. She also portrayed 
an elderly flirt in Kalo-Delphian's 
1952 production, The Silver Whistle. 

Thomas Wolfgang, who has the play's 
second lead in the role of Masters, has 
had leading roles in The Importance of 
Being Earnest, So This Is London, 
Philo-Clio's Murder in the Cathedral, 
and the F. T. A. Day presentation The

night in dormitories at Lebanon Valley 
College or in private homes in Annville. 
However, many students from nearby 
colleges have been asked to return to 
their campuses for the night because of 
crowded housing conditions. Saturday 
morning breakfast will be served at

Greetings to our Guests 

We of the LA VIE COLLEGIENNE staff are happy to speak for 
the entire student body in welcoming to our campus the delegates to 
the state Future Teachers of America convention. We are indeed 
honored and proud to have you here and will be glad to be of service 
to you in any way possible at any time. 

In this period of international misunderstanding and uncertainty 
as to the future, it is more important than ever that we of the United 
States maintain a strong and democratic educational system. There- 
fore, it is very encouraging and fitting that those who will be the back- 
bone of that system in the future should come together and should 
meet with other groups to discuss common interests and problems. 
Probably, we of this campus would be hard pressed to think of any 
other organization which we would rather entertain than the Future 
Teachers of America. 

We hope that you will carry away with you from this convention 
many new ideas. Our local F. T. A. chapter will be striving for new 
ideas and inspiration too. It is our hope that each person will heartily 
enjoy himself, and will also find much help in "sharing the best with 
the rest." 

Sixth Column 

By Gail Edgar 

Fellow strugglers for survival and maintenance in this little community of 
higher learning: lend me your term papers, reference reading notes, and marks. 
If you are the average LV student, you are busy complaining that you haven't 
any time to waste, and you are drinking more coffee worrying about the fact 
that you drink too much coffee. To give you, the well-informed students of 
Lebanon Valley College, seme ideas about what to do with your spare hours, 
here's a rundown of activities confronting you in the too near future. 

For Fun And Relaxation . . . 

Happily we announce the coming of the annual initiation for the Women's 
Athletic Association which will take the campus by storm the evening of April 
21 at 5:45 p.m. All girls interested and eligible for membership (with two 
hundred WAA points fcr participation in the last year) will subject themselves 
on North Hall steps at that time. 

WAA will also enjoy on May 11 their annual awards banquet at the Ann- 
ville Legion. Details will be announced later. 

Who Are All These People? . . . 

You, the students of Lebanon Valley College, are the cordial hosts and 
hostesses to approximately 250 members of Future Teachers of America from 
all over the state. These are important people, so please refrain from hanging 
from trees on campus and other animal-like behavior — just kidding, of course. 
Feel free to join into the activities planned for the weekend — dance, tea, ban- 
quet, concert, meetings, and other entertainment. 

About The Elections Coming Up . . . 

If you happen to be a president of an organization on campus, please con- 
sider it a good idea to hold your elections before the beginning of May. Student- 
Faculty Council elections and organization depends on the outcome of the 
ballots on campus. Remember also to decide on the dates for your traditional 
and 'big' weekends next year so that the scheduling of these events can be 
done in the early part of May. If you haven't kept up on your Student-Faculty 
column, this is the plan for next year: the scheduling of all activities will be 
handled by a committee made up of Council members from now on. 

Leave It To The Underclassmen . . . 

Congratulations to the Frosh and Sophomores for their streak of originality 
and ambition in executing the Underclassmen Weekend which will take place 
April 24 and 25. Let's hope everyone gets and stays behind them all the way 
for a successful play and dance. Incidentally, Gene Tritch will supply the 
music for the dance. 

Info About The New Quittie . . . 

Rumors have it that the new edition of the Quittapahilla, Lebanon Valley 
College's yearbook, which will be published by the exalted (?) Junior Class, 
will have everything from words to third-dimension. Don't believe everything 
you hear; however, we do admit it is destined to be nothing short of great! 

If you are interested in extra copies for friends and relatives, you may 
order them from Mr. Frank Retrievi in exchange for a mere $6.00. Order 
them immediately to insure 'quick delivery' — in other words, to meet the dead- 

The Juniors Do It Again . . . 

Let's make those definite arrangements for the Prom! The tickets, at $3.50 
a couple, will be on sale shortly. The theme which has been decided upon is 
"Up in Central Park" — a reconversion of the large gym which you can't miss. 
Red McCarthy is the orchestra and — yes, there will be no em-ceeing. Other 
details? The dance is semiformal, Saturday evening, May 2 from 9 to 12 in 
the main gym. You will be contacted for tickets or see Paul Holligan if you're 

There you are . . . your weekends all planned for you for the next few 
weeks to come. All you have to do is keep up with your term papers, refer- 
ence reading, and other incidentals. Have a wonderful time! 


By Allen J. Koppenhaver 

Recently there have been two in- 
teresting and worthwhile recitals on 
campus. One was the organ recital of 
Tom Israel, a senior, given on Sunday, 
March 15, and the other the flute 
recital of Miss Jane Taylor, a sopho- 
more, given on March 26. 

MR. ISRAEL, a student of Professor 
Campbell, performed in the manner of 
many of the professional organists of 
today in that his outward manner was 
the unconcerned routine performance, 
but after the recital one had the feel- 
ing that Mr. Israel had done much 
more than expected and had presented 
this program with a very warm and 
honest feeling that is so often missing 
among musicians with any great techni- 
cal facility. 

His most interesting pieces were The 
Kyrie Eleison from Cathedral Windows 
by Karg-Elert, and the Flor Peeters 
Modal Suite. Both of these are con- 
temporary works and the presentation 
was a very studied but a very under- 
standing one. The Bach Vivace from 
Second Trio Sonata and the Three 
Choral Preludes were never out of 
mood and always satisfying. The one 
thing of note in the Mendelssohn 
Sonata No. 6 was that he played it 
with a feeling of unity and complete- 
ness, making it a very wonderful piece 
with which to begin the program. The 
Piece Heroique of Franck was very in- 
teresting but requires a few more hear- 
ings to absorb all that Franck is say- 
ing. Powell Weaver's Squirrel was a 
light and amusing breath in this well- 
constructed program. The Scherzo in 
G minor of Bossi and the Angelas 
Domini of J. Russell were very good, 
but were shadowed by the breadth of 
all the previous works. 

MISS TAYLOR, a student of Profes- 
sor Stachow, presented a recital that 
made all those present sit up and take 
note. Last year she presented a full re- 
cital and did it very nicely, but this year 
she displayed more musical growth than 
most of us expected. 

She began with the Telemann Suite 
in A Minor for Flute and Piano and 
after a very interesting overture proceed- 
ed through five movements that seem- 
ed to increase in interest as it progress- 
ed. Of the five movements, I would 
say the Air a Vltallian and the Re- 
jouissance were executed with the most 
feeling. The Concerto in D Major No. 
2 of Mozart followed this. The An- 
dante of this work was very warm in 
mood and was followed by an Allegro 
in which she captured all the character 
that Mozart ever intended for it. The 
Saint-Saens Airs de Ballet D'Ascanio 
gave feelings of impressionism. The De- 
verie of Caplet showed Miss Taylor at 
the peak of her evening's performance. 
Here was a piece that presented musi- 
cally all the moods a person might 
possess in a reverie. She produced 
practically every color possible on the 
flute and with a calmness that made 
the work a complete success. Her 
closing work was Petite Valse of Caplet, 
a light caprice very nicely done. The 
audience was very enthusiastic over 
this fine performer and rightly so. She 
acknowledged this with two encores. 
The first, Night Soliloquy by Kent 
Keenan, contemporary writer, was al- 
most better than anything on the pro- 
gram. Here, finally, was an encore 
which you had to think about. It 
produced sensations much like a Rim- 
baud poem which you read, reflect and 
come back for more, feeling that here 
is something you've been missing all 
these years. Her last encore was Al- 
legretto by Gudard. It was light and of 
a typical and encore style. 

A word must be said about the ex- 
cellent accompaniment of Miss Joyce 
Snyder, freshman. She did a profes- 
sional job to say the least. Miss 
Snyder did not detract from the 
concert with her outstanding playing 
but rather, she multiplied its wonderful

Never heard of it before." Is that what some of you delegates said 
when told you were coming here for a convention? 

Or did some of you immediately answer, "Lebanon Valley — the 
Flying Dutchmen? Sure, that's the little college that beat Fordham in 
NCAA basketball last month." 

Maybe you thought "Lebanon Valley — hm'm, I've heard about 
its outstanding Conservatory of Music." 

Regardless of what you knew about this college before arriving 
here, we'd like to introduce LVC to you more fully — as well as refresh 
the minds of our own students about their alma mater. 

This past year has been a very busy one for this liberal arts 
college of less than four hundred students. What they lack in quantity 
the Blue and White make up for in quality. Activities this week-end 
on campus illustrate this. Conservatory students have been busy 
practicing for weeks in preparation for their annual Music Festival. 
This year soloists from New York City are singing Brahms Requiem 
with the Conservatory chorus. Last spring Fred Waring's choral 
director Lara Hoggard led the chorus in "Song of America." 

Just as the Conservatory is regarded with prestige in the music 
world, so the Flying Dutchmen basketball team has acquired enthusiastic 
recognition for its outstanding performances this past winter. After 
defeating Fordham, the Blue and White team — accompanied by many 
loyal fans — journeyed to Raleigh, N. C, to represent the Middle At- 
lantic States in the NCAA tournament. Louisiana State University 
overcame the home team but not before the men of LVC had put up 
a courageous battle. In the fall of 1951 the football team played Vir- 
ginia's Morris Harvey College in Kentucky's Burley Bowl. 

Athletes aren't the only ones to represent our college away from 
home, however. In the near future many members of the Political 
Science Club will be attending the Intercollegiate Conference on Gov- 
ernment in Harrisburg. Academically speaking, the college's history 
department is one of the best in the state. And did you know that 
LVC is one of three Pennsylvania colleges among the nation's top 
fifty in the field of science? 

Though they may have had small beginnings, Lebanon Valley's 
roots are planted firmly in the field of education. Guided by the ideal 
expressed in its motto, "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall 
make you free," the college has come a long way and successfully 
weathered many storms since it was founded in 1866. President Dr. 
Frederic K. Miller is continuing in the footsteps of his predecessors as 
an able college administrator. The Lynch Memorial Physical Educa- 
tion Building is a tribute to the work of the late Dr. Clyde A. Lynch. 
The memory of another president has been honored by our George D. 
Gossard chapter of FTA. 

Are you FTA delegates finding a spirit of friendliness and help- 
fulness in the members of our college family? We hope so, for LVC 
has long been noted for its cordiality and good will. Now that you 
know our college better, we hope you'll want to return again someday. 
You'll probably find us still busy with our many activities but always 
ready with a friendly smile. Meanwhile, have a pleasant week-end, 

Meet the President 

A versatile personality, a capable 
worker, a talented musician — these words 
aptly describe Willian Shoppell, national 
president of Future Teachers of America. 

Though the picture on page one may 
lead you to believe that Bill is a serious- 
looking, studious individual, once you 
know this tall blond you'll also discover 
him as a friendly fellow often ready with 
a witty remark to spark a conversation. 
The bright twinkle in his blue eyes is 
significant of his gaiety and self-confi- 

A good student academically, versa- 
tile Bill is also active in campus affairs. 
As a senior in the Conservatory of mu- 
sic this year, Bill was chosen as one ot 
ten students to represent Lebanon Valley 
in Who's Who in American Colleges and 
Universities. He has been a member of 
the concert and marching bands and the 
Glee Club for four years. He served as 
president of his class during his sopho- 
more and junior years and belongs to 
Kappa Lambda Sigma, one of the men's 
societies on campus. 

Occupying a great amount of Bill's 
time are his FTA activities. But Bill 
finds the work interesting and fulfills his 
duties capably. During his junior year 
Bill served Lebanon Valley's George D. 
Gossard chapter as program chairman. 
Last April, soon after this chapter elect- 
ed him its president for the coming year, 
Bill was one of Lebanon Valley's dele- 
gates at the state FTA convention at East 
Stroudsburg State Teachers College 
There he won the state presidency of the 
organization. It was while representing 
Pennsylvania at the national convention 

in Ypsilanti, Michigan, in July that Bill 
was elected national FTA head. 

FTA work is nothing new to Bill 
Shoppell, for he was active in the 
organization even as a high school 
student. Bill was the first presi- 
dent of the FTA Club at Reading High 

Well-known in music circles for his 
singing ability as a bass baritone, Bill is 
at present a church soloist. Every week- 
end he goes home to sing at St. Thomas 
Reformed Church in Reading. Summers 
find Bill continuing to share his musical 
talents with others, for he sings with 
and plays bass clarinet and saxophone 
for the Ringgold Band in Reading. 

Does this musicial activity take all of 
Bill's time or curb his versatility? Appar- 
ently not, for he is a cook at the Reading 
Fair and a life guard at South Temple, 
a public pool in Reading. Bill enjoys 
swimming at Avalon-by-the-Sea, New 
Jersey, during his vacations, too. 

Music hasn't been neglected by Bill 
during FTA convention preparations, fa r 
every day he practice teaches in nearby 

Although service in the army or air 
corps seems imminent for Bill this sum- 
mer, some day he hopes to be a high 
school music teacher. Here he will have 
the opportunity of working with future 
teachers of America — but in a different 
sense than he is now. However, we kno^ 
that Bill will be a successful teacher if k e 
continues to exemplify the fine spirit of 
FTA members. Maybe he'll even product 
a future successor! Best of luck, M r '

FESTIVAL, from p. 1, col. 1 
has appeared as featured soloist with 
the Robert Shaw Chorale during their 
transcontinental tour. He has appeared 
in Carnegie Hall in the Mozart Requiem 
and in the Bernard Rogers Passion, with 
the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh in 
the Passion of St. John by Bach, and 
has made numerous appearances over 
the country in concert and oratorio 
renditions. On Broadway he was alter- 
nate to the second lead in the Song of 
Norway, and appeared in Allegro. Mr. 
Keast is the featured baritone soloist in 
the Shaw Chorale's Sweet and Low and 
the Mozart Requiem albums, recently 
released by R. C. A. Victor. 

The Requiem is the greatest of 
Brahms' choral works. He worked at 
the composition for more than ten 
years before its completion. The text 
of Brahms' Requiem is quite unlike 
those of the Mozart, Cherubini, Berlioz, 
and Verdi Requiem Masses. In the 
latter there is strict adherence to the 
Roman Catholic Liturgy, a prayer for 
the peace of the dead. Brahms, on the 
contrary, took his text from the Ger- 
man Bible; it is designed to reconcile 
the living with the idea of death. Often 
referred to as the "German Requiem," 
Brahms' work is in seven movements. 
The text is taken from the books of 
Matthew, Peter, John, Hebrews, and 
the Psalms.

L.V. Serves As Host 
To Science Meeting: 
Alumni Present Papers 

Three alumni of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege presented papers at the twenty-ninth 
annual meeting of the Pennsylvania 
Academy of Science which was held at 
Lebanon Valley College, April 2, 3, and 
4. Dr. James H. Leathern, '32, professor 
of zoology at Rutgers University, pre- 
sented a paper entitled "The influence of 
hormones and dietary protein on heart 
weight," while Dr. Donald E. Shay, '37, 
head of the Department of Bacteriology, 
University of Maryland, dealt with "An- 
tiseptics and germicides used in den- 
tistry." Two papers written by Robert 
Bray Wingate, '48, medical illustrator at 
the Harrisburg Hospital, were presented; 
they were entitled "A method of fabri- 
cating medical and scientific moulages 
in latex rubber," and "The reconstruction 
of facial and body anatomy with latex 
rubber prostheses." 

Symposium Opens Meetings 

The three-day meeting opened with 
an Executive Committee meeting on 
Thursday afternoon. The first general 
session, which began Friday morning with 
a brief welcoming address by Dr. Fred- 
eric K. Miller, president of Lebanon Val • 
ely College, featured a symposium on 
"Stream Pollution Control in Pennsyl- 
vania." Three experts discussed the vari- 
ous aspects of the question. Ruth Patrick, 
curator of limnology at the Philadelphia 
Academy of Natural Sciences, discussed 
the "Biological Phases of Stream Pollu- 
tion;" William H. Leathern, head of the 
Mellon Institute's Division of Microbiol- 
ogy and Microspocy, talked on the "Bac- 
teriologic Aspects of Bituminous Coal 
Mine Effluents;" and J. R. Hoffert, chief 
engineer, Pennsylvania Department of 
Health, described the "Stream Pollution 
Abatement Program in Pennsylvania." 
Edward P. Claus, president of the Penn- 
sylvania Academy of Science, presided 
over the symposium. 

Junior Academy Also Convenes 

A geology session and two biology ses- 
sions were held on Friday afternoon, at 
which time papers were presented by 
members of the Academy. The Pennsyl- 
vania Junior Academy also held a session 
on Friday afternoon, with Miss Sophie 
Mills of Johnstown High School presid- 

Following a dinner for both Senior 
and Junior Academy members at the 
Annville American Legion Home on Fri- 
day evening, a lecture was held in Engle 
Hall on the topic, "Conservation in 
Pennsylvania." Dr. M. Graham Netting, 
assistant director of the Carnegie Muse- 
um, was the speaker. 

The program for Saturday morning in- 
cluded a business meeting, a general ses- 
sion, and special sessions on biology and 
geology. The Junior Academy also held 
a session, at which time prizes were pre- 
sented by Lebanon Valley College to stu- 
dents for outstanding papers. 

The Academy's annual meeting was 
concluded with a field trip on Saturday 
afternoon to the Winthrop-Stearns plant 
at Myerstown and to the old Charcoal 
Furnace at Cornwall. 


The Glee Club and Band are kept 
quite busy these days. They presented a 
combined concert last Sunday, April 12, 
at the Phineas Davis Junior High School 
in York, and will render one Sunday, 
April 26, at 3 P. M., in The Forum in 
Harrisburg. Those of you who live in the 
Harrisburg area may want to bring your 
parents and friends to this concert. 

Miss any conducting classes last week? 
It's because Prof. Rutledge was the guest 
conductor for the South Central District 
Chorus sponsored by the P.M.E.A. at 
Clearfield High School, Clearfield, Penn- 
syvania. Bravo, Prof!

We're giving our rabbits' feet to the 
four Conservites going to the Intercolle- 
giate Chorus Festival at Drexel this 
weekend. I hope that Pat Satterthwaite, 
Julie Ulrich, Bill and Ben Lutz all have 
their voices in good shape. Good luck, 

Students of the Conservatory of Music 
are being asked to participate in a mu- 
sical program over WLBR on Sunday 
evenings from seven to seven-thirty. Last 
week Jane Taylor was featured in several 
flute selections, and Ben Lutz rendered 
several vocal selections. They were ac- 
companied by Joyce Snyder. 


Allan Koppenhaver and Ken Keiser 
have been accepted as members of the 
West Point Band. Ken Keiser will be 
featured as a marimba soloist as well as 
playing trumpet in the band. 

Pi Gamma Mu Tours New York 

Eleven student members and three fac- 
ulty members of the Pennsylvania Nu 
Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu enjoyed two 
days of the recent Easter vacation on a 
field trip to New York City for the pur- 
pose of visiting some of the outstanding 
landmarks of that metropolis. 

Arriving in New York early Monday 
afternoon, the group checked in at the 
Hotel Paris and after assembling in the 
lobby to make certain no one had lost 
themselves in the ensuing confusion, the 
party travelled crosstown to visit the 
United Nations. An additional treat was 
the luncheon in the Delegates' Lounge 
where some of the more observant were 
able to spot some of the official represen- 
tatives to that organization. 

The members were up early Tuesday- 

morning. The itinerary included a guided 
tour of the Second Federal Reserve Bank 
at which time there was opportunity to 
observe money as it was received, proc- 
essed and redistributed. The New York 
Stock Exchange, the Money of the World 
Exhibit of the Chase National Bank, a 
tour through the Wall Street Journal, and 
a visit to the impressive steel and glass 
home of Lever Brothers rounded out the 
field trip. 

The student members included in this 
trip were Herbert Heffley, Barbara Krei- 
ser, Betty Criswell, Edgar Landis, Lee C. 
Smith, Howard Ancell, Raymond Coble, 
Lucie Portier and David Wetzel. Faculty 
members acocmpanying the group were 
Robert C. Riley, advisor to the chapter, 
Alex J. Fehr and Richard E. Fox.

details with their adviser, and students

addition to fulfilling all of these duties 
on campus, Dr. McKlveen directs the 
Youth Fellowship and teaches the Col- 
lege Sunday School Class at the Evan- 
gelical United Brethren Church. 
Gives Numerous Speeches 

Often the McKlveen household is as 
lively as Grand Central Station too! Pre- 
paring speeches for various organizations 
occupies much of Dr. McKlveen's time. 
He delivers many addresses at high 
school career days and before teachers 
groups, service clubs, and church congre- 
gations. Mrs. McKlveen, also a graduate 
of Juniata, is active in church work and 
substitutes as a school teacher. Their 
children, Helen Jo, 12, and Larry, 9, re- 
flect the enthusiasm for life which their 
parents share. Dr. McKlveen enjoys ten- 
nis and swimming during vacations. But 
recently he expressed his individualism 
in a different way — he and Helen Jo had 
a marvelous time flying a kite one windy 

Declares Teaching a Challenge 

Dr. McKlveen believes that member- 
ship in FTA helps to prepare a future 
teacher to meet the great challenges 
which his profession offers. "I have de- 
veloped my philosophy of education," 
he declares, "around the statement once 
made that 'there are two things awful — 
the starry heavens and your responsibility 
as a living individual in this world.' As 
future teachers in the classrooms of to- 
morrow, facing future citizens of tomor- 
row, does it not hold true that your re- 
sponsibility is indeed an awful thing?" 

Governing Women 
To Be Feted At Soiree 

The two women's governing bodies on 
campus, the Resident Women's Student 
Government Association and the Wom- 
en's Commuter Council, are to be the 
guests at a Soiree given in their honor 
by Dean Dent, the Dean of Women, on 
April 23 at 7 o'clock, in the Faculty 
House. This affair, the first of its kind, 
will include a buffet supper, entertain- 
ment, and remarks by the presidents of 
the governing bodies and Dean Dent. 

Campus FTA Elects 
Newspaper Editor 
New President 

Barbara Ranck succeeds Bill Shoppell 
as the president of Lebanon Valley's 
FTA. Election of officers for next year 
took place at the annual business meeting 
on April 7. Lou Sorrentino was re-elect- 
ed vice-president. Nancy Daugherty will 
take Barbara Ranck's place as recording 
secretary. Shirley Warfel is the new cor- 
responding secretary, a position held this 
year by Ruth MacFarland. DeWitt Zuse 
succeeds Bill Diehm as treasurer, white 
Gail Edgar and Frank Retrievi were re- 
elected members-at-large. 

Now a member of the junior class, 
Barbara Ranck has been active in the 
Future Teachers of America since enter- 
ing college. Last April she was a dele- 
gate from Lebanon Valley to the state 
FTA convention at East Stroudsburg 
State Teachers College. Barbara is the 
editor-in-chief of LA VIE COLLEGI- 
ENNE, having been associate editor last 
year. Active in several other campus 
organizations, she is also a Dean's List 
student. Barbara, whose home is in Mt. 
Joy, Pennsylvania, plans to teach English 
and French after graduation. 

Activites End With Banquet May 5 

In addition to the election of officers 
at the recent FTA meeting, plans Were 
completed for the state convention which 
will be on campus this week-end. It is 
hoped that LVC's own FTA will be well- 
represented here at the convention. Also 
committees were formed to make ar- 
rangements for the annual FTA banquet 
on May 5 in the Annville Legion Hall. 

Joyce Hammock

Baseball Team Lacks Pitching Reserve, 
Boasts Power Hitting, Tight Defense 

A lack of depth in the pitching depart 
ment is the big problem confronting 
Coach "Rinso" Marquette for this year's 
baseball season. Howie "the Whip" Ros- 
ier is the only first line pitcher from last 
year's squad. Howie, who makes his 
home outside of Hershey, had a 7-1 rec- 
ord playing for Hershey AA this past 
summer. He also compiled an admirable 
earned run average of .98. Howie's spe- 
cialty is a fast ball and a quick breaking 
curve. If Kosier can maintain his con- 
trol, he could possibly go the full nine 
every other game. 

Bob Gustin is the only other vet of last 
year's pitching squad. "B.G." did not 
see much action, however, and was used 
mostly in relief. Other pitchers include 
Ken Hoffer, Al Boyer, and George Sey- 
fert. Among them not one is a port 
sider and left handed hitters might pre- 
sent a difficulty. But with an air-tight 
defense and clutch hitting the staff 
could come up with an impressive rec- 

Power hitting on the team will un- 
doubtedly be supplied by catcher Merle 
Wise and 1st baseman Mark Heberling. 
Merle, who hails from New Cumberland, 
has much experience behind the plate 
and last year came thru with a few time- 
ly homers. He also had the highest slug- 
ging average. 

Mark Heberling at first is a better 
batsman than he is a glove man. Mark 
hits consistently above 300, but is a late 
starter. Hitting usually on the line, Mark 
will be good for a number of extra base 

Going around the infield to second 
base, we find probably the best all 
around ballplayer on the squad in the 
person of Ross Fasick. Ross, a star of 
the Harrisburg Firemen, sparkplugged 
Ralph Mease's ball club defensively and 
offensively. His agility to scoop, throw 
and get rid of the ball in a hurry will 
undoubtedly result in quite a few double 
plays around the Keystone sack. As a 
clutch hitter, Ross possesses the attribute 
of being able to hit fast ball pitching 
consistently and on the line. 

The big "if" on the team revolves 
around the man in charge of the short- 
stop position, Lou Sorrentino. Lou was a 
starting pitcher under Ralph Mease, but 
finds the infield better to his liking. Lou 
is fast and shifty and if he is able to play 
good ball defensively and hit with any 
degree of consistency, the team may be 
able to compile an enviable record. 

At third Howie Landa and Frank Re- 
trievi are both good prospects. Both 
played ball last year, sharing the duties 
of the hot spot. Howie has the asset of 
being the "Eddie Stanky" of the Flying 
Dutchmen. He draws many walks, and 
while on the basepaths terrorizes the 
pitchers with his speed and dexterity 
afoot. Stealing is one of his favorite 

Although Frank Retrievi is playing on- 
ly his second year of hard ball, the Steel- 
ton ace has a potential for hitting the 
long ball. As a starter or as a pinch hit- 
ter, Frank is a valuable asset. 

In left field Richie Furda stands out 
as the best defensive outfielder on the 
varsity. Richie has made many circus 
catches in past seasons. He pegs to the 
infield and home with an amazing degree 
of accuracy. Many potential runs have 
been annulled by his accurate peg. At 
the plate, Richie has a good eye, usually 
good for at least one hit a game. 

Center field is taken over by an ex- 
second sacker, Marty Gluntz. Experience 
is the biggest factor in Marty's favor. 
Marty continually hustles on the field 
or on the besepaths. 

Rounding out the pastures is Bob Tar- 
antolo in right. "Tin" is the most under- 
rated ballpk yer on the Dutchmen squad. 
Very few balls get by him in the out- 
field or at the plate. Right field, incident- 
ally, is a new challange to Tin, since he 
previously played the center slot. 

In Bill Gorgone the Valley has one of 
the best utility players. Bill catches and 

Valley Nine Loses 
Season's First Game 

Lebanon Valley's 1953 baseball sea- 
son started off on the wrong foot as 
the Dutchmen, playing host to Temple, 
were beaten by them 7-5. In a tight, 
see-saw struggle, the Dutchmen battled 
the Owls on even terms for six innings 
only to lose out to them in the final 
three stanzas. 

For the first three innings it was a 
scoreless dual between the two starting 
pitchers, Howard Kosier for Lebanon 
Valley and John Lano for Temple. 
Kosier got out of one jam in the first 
inning when, after loading the bases 
on a hit batsmen, a two-base error by 
third baseman Howard Landa, and a 
base on balls, he fanned the Temple 
right fielder for the final out. In the 
fourth inning, the scoreless tie was 
broken as Temple scored twice. Singles 
by Hall and McCreary and a base 
clearing triple by Sylvester put the 
Owls out in front 2-0. Undaunted, the 
Dutchmen battled right back to go into 
the lead. Sorrentino reached first on 
an error by the first baseman. Then, 
after a sacrifice by Fasick, and a pop- 
out by Heberling, Lano lost his con- 
trol. He walked Wise, Tarantolo, and 
Furda forcing in a run. Then Marty 
Gluntz got the Dutchmen's first hit of 
the day, a single, which scored Wise 
and Tarantolo. This put Lebanon Val- 
ley out in front 3-2. 

In the fifth inning, Temple tied the 
score. Singles by Didrickson, Hall 
and Lano, sandwiched in with an error 
by Heberling, tallied the run. In the 
last half of the fifth Lebanon Valley 
went out in front without benefit of a 
hit. Howard Landa was hit by the 
pitcher, necessitating a change of pitcher, 
Grivna replacing Lano. Landa then 
stole second, went to third on a fielder's 
choice play, and scored on a wild 
pitch. In the top of the sixth, Temple 
knotted the score again. Sylvester 
walked, went to second on a wild pitch, 
and scored on a single by Connoly. 

In the eighth inning Temple went 
out in front to stay. McCreary walked, 
was sacrificed to second and scored on 
Headley's single. Headley went to 
second on the throw to the plate and 
moved on to third as Conolly flied out 
to Gluntz. He scored on Didrickson's 
single. In the bottom of that stanza, 
the Dutchmen made a last effort to pull 
the game out of the fire. Ross Fasick 
was hit by the pitcher. Then Merle 
Wise got Lebanon Valley's second hit, 
a double to left scoring Fasick. How- 
ever, this was the Dutchmen's swan 
song. In the ninth Temple scored once 
again. Hoffer, who relieved Kosier, 
loaded the bases on two walks and a 
hit batsmen. He was then relieved by 
Al Boyer who got McCreary to hit to 
Furda, Miller scoring after the catch. 
Then Sylvester flied into a double play, 
Furda to Landa. Lebanon Valley failed 
to score in their half of the ninth and 
the game was over. The fact that the 
Dutchmen only got two hits was the 
big reason that they failed to win. The 
team needs a little more batting prac- 
tice if they are going to have a success- 
ful season this year. 

North Hall Girls 
Win Volleyball Title 

North Hall won the girls' intramural 
volleyball tournament which was com- 
pleted before Easter vacation. Members 
of the winning team included Joan Eck- 
enroad, Gail Edgar, Diane Kohr, Sandra 
Nelson, Barbara Ranck, Lois Reedy, 
Joan Ringle, Priscilla Thomas, and Shir- 
ley Warfel. These girls played in a suffi- 
cient number of tournament games to se- 
cure one hundred points toward member- 
ship in the Women's Athletic Associa- 

Others participating in this tournament 
included teams from Sheridan Hall, 
South Hall, West Hall, and the women's 
day student group.

nament was Elaine Buck, who previously 
won in the freshman division of the tour- 
nament. She gained the tournament title 
when the final match was forfeited by 
Evelyn Eby, victor in the upperclassmen 

A mixed doubles badminton tour- 
nament in which all Lebanon Valley stu-

President of the Student Body 
Lebanon Valley College 
Annville, Penna. 
Dear Sir, 

This is an extremely belated acknowl- 
edgment from the students of the College 
of the Holy Cross, of the really fine work 
that the students of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege did in cheering for the Crusader 
team during its stay in Raleigh, N. C. 
The spirit of generosity and wholeheart- 
ed support displayed by the members of 
the Lebanon Valley band, their cheer- 
leaders and rooting section in boosting 
the handful of Holy Cross men who 
made the trip to North Carolina to back 
our basketball team on the weekend of 
March 13, 14, and 15, will be long re- 
membered. The universal opinion of the 
men who were fortunate enough to be 
present at the games, was one of extreme 
praise for the students of Lebanon Val- 
ley. Everywhere the same thought was 
expressed here on campus which is un- 
deniable proof of the esteem in which w- 
hold the "Flying Dutchmen." 

It is extremely hard to express the 
thanks which we feel are due to you for 
your helping of the Crusader cause in 
such fine style. We apologize for the un- 
forgiveable delay and hope that you will 
realize that only the external pressure 
of school work has caused our apparent 
neglect of common courtesy. 

Again, in behalf of the students and 
the basketball team, I wish to convey to 
you our deep appreciation and gratitude 
tor the tremendous part which Lebanon 
Valley played in supporting our College 
at the game in Raleigh.

Lou Rossini, head basketball coach at 
Columbia University, was the main 
speaker at a testimonial dinner held for 
the Lebanon Valley College basketball 
squad at the Palmyra American Legion 
Home last Thursday, April 9. A group 
of sports-minded citizens from Annville 
and Palmyra sponsored the banquet for 
the victorious Dutchmen., 

Mr. Rossini, after being introduced by 
head basketball coach G. R. (Rinso) 
Marquette, told the group that the L.V.C 
victory over Fordham in the N.C.A.A. 
playoffs stunned the college basketball 
world in general and the New York met- 
ropolitan area in particular. He also stat- 
ed that the accomplishments of the sen- 
sational little team and of Lebanon Val- 
ley College would stand as an inspiration 
for all small colleges and for small bas- 
ketball players.

Individual trophies were presented to 
each of the players, the two coaches, and 
the senior student manager by Eugene 
Heisey of Annville, and Cyrus Forney

Dorothy Grabau and William Shoppell 
wil be featured in a joint recital on 
Thursday, April 30, in Engle Hall. This 
Of special interest to future teachers recital is one of a number of programs 


is the formation of a jointure, for when 
several schools are combined in one new 
building new teaching positions are avail- 
able. Especially is this true if the new 
school includes several special depart- 
ments, such as music, which were not 
present before in any of the schools 
which formed the jointure. 

The Annville-Cleona Joint School Sys- 
tem, of which Rev. Richwine is presi- 
dent, was formed in February for the 
purpose of building a new high school to 
serve the borough of Cleona and the 
townships of Annville, North Annville, 
and South Annville. Representatives from 
school boards of these four areas com- 
prise the membership of the Annville- 
Cleona Joint School System. Although 
the site committee has not yet selected 
any land, it is hoped that the school will 
be ready for occupancy by 1955. Be- 
tween one and a quarter and one and a 
half million dollars will be spent on this 

This jointure is only one of several 
in Lebanon County, but is an example of 
many which have been formed through- 
out the state. Discounting its big cities,

Phylils Barnhart, Ruth Evans Dalbeck, 
Grace Mohn, Florence Sauder, Shirley 
Schaeffer, and Arlene Snyder, will com- 
prise the 1953 Lebanon Valley College 
May Court, and will be the recipients of 
high honors on May Day tomorrow, May 
2. The court, which is chosen annually 
by a campus-wide vote from a list of 
senior girls, was selected mainly on the 
basis of personal beauty and charm. This 
year the group includes six music majors 
and two college students. Perhaps the 
greatest range will be noted in the height 
department, where a difference of nine 
inches is recorded between the tallest and 
shortest girl. 

Joyce Hammock, who will reign su- 
preme as queen for the day, has received 
many honors in other fields also. An out- 
standing pianist, she has been accompan- 
ist of the college glee club for several 
years, and has been presented in several 
public recitals as the sole performer. Last 
year she was chosen for the title, "Out- 
standing Instrumentalist" in the class of 
1953's Quittapahilla. She is a member 
of the Resident Women's Student Gov- 
ernment Asssociation and she played var- 
sity basketball for three years. Joyce's 
home is in Front Royal, Virginia. 

Maid of Honor Alicia Whiteman, from 
Hawthorne, N. J., is also a conservatory 
student. Lee has been active, in addition 
to music activities, on the hockey field 
and as a cheerleader. She was also hon- 
ored in the Quittapahilla as Miss Quittie. 

Phyllis Barnhart, another music edu- 
cation major, hails from Waynesboro, 
Penna. Phil served on the R.W.S.G.A. 
for three years, as secretary in her junior 
year. She was a member of the Student 
Christian Association cabinet, as secre- 
tary in her sophomore year and vice- 
president for women in her junior year. 
Phyllis completes the trio on the May 
Court, as she, Joyce Hammock, and Lee 
Whiteman are roommates. 

The only married member of the court 

is Ruth Evans Dalbeck. Ruth, who lives 
in Lebanon, Penna., became Mrs. Dal- 
beck in March. Another conservatory 
student, she is a member of the glee club 
and has been active as a pianist and or- 
ganist. She was secretary of her class for 
two years, is vice-president of the R.W.S. 
G.A., and also serves as vice-president 
of Delphian. 

Grace Mohn, the shortest member of 
the group, is from Adamstown, Penna., 
and a music major. She was elected to 
several offices in past years; these include 
recording secretary of Delphian and sec- 
retary of the class of 1953. She was a 
member of the "Miss Quittie Court" of 
the yearbook. This year she served as 
treasurer of the R.W.S.G.A. 

Florence Sauder is well known on 
campus as the president of the Resident 
Women's Student Government Associa- 
tion. An active conservite, she is a mem-

One of the two college court members 
is Shirley Schaeffer, of Hummelstown, 
Penna. Shirley, who is a resident of 
Sheridan Hall, has a major in sociology 
and a minor in psychology. This year 
she served as president of the Women's 
Athletic Association, a position which 
she well merits due to her activity in 
both varsity hockey and basketball. She 
was chosen as "Outstanding Woman Ath- 
lete" for last year's yearbook. She has 
also served as secretary-treasurer of Pi 
Gamma Mu. 

Arlene Snyder, from East Stroudsburg, 
Pennna., is one of the two campus nurs- 
es. Arlene graduated from the Lancaster 
General Hospital School of Nursing and 
is taking courses at Lebanon Valley 
which will lead to the bachelor of science 
degree in nursing. Last year she served 
as president of the college Psychology 

The Story 


It's an old legend they tell in Texas. 
Since 1820 swarms of Americans had 
been pouring into Texas, then a part of 
the Mexican state of Coshuila. Among 
those who came about 1835 or 1836 was 
a young American cowboy named Bruce 
Conway. Santa Anna had recently come 
into power in Mexico and was engaged 
in a vigorous campaign to enforce Mexi- 
can laws, which forbade slavery, and to 
force the Americans to pay taxes to the 
Mexican government, as they had prom- 
ised to do under the Austin agreement. 
Santa Anna's attempts to assert the au- 
thority of the Mexican government were 
bitterly resented by the Americans, who 
were already talking of setting up an in- 
dependent state. 

Conway, looking for a good watering 
place for his cattle, rode one day into a 
strange valley, and suddenly found him- 
self surrounded by Mexican soldiers. Un- 
known to the Americans, Santa Anna 
had himself led an army into the heart 
of the Texas resistance country with the 
aim of reasserting Mexican authority. 
Captured, Conway is brought before San- 
ta Anna and questioned. He defies the 
Mexican leader and asserts that the Am- 
ericans will never submit to the Mexi- 
can government. Santa Anna denounces 
him as a traitor and orders him shot at 

During the "trials," Conway had felt 
upon him the dark eyes of a Mexican 
girl. Now as he is being led away to the 
prisoner post, the Indian guard places a 
wild rose in his hand and tells him it is 
from Rosita, the daughter of the Mexican 
general. That night Rosita slips through 
the line of sentries, cuts his bonds and 
frees him. His Indian friend Stony-Face 
guides him back to the American settle- 

After that, through the help of Stony- 
Face, Conway and Rosita are able to 
meet many times. On one occasion Con- 
way disguises himself as an Indian and 
takes part with other Indians in a cere- 
monial dance. Among the spectators of 
the dance are Rosita and her father, the 
General Santa Anna. After the Indian 
Dance Rosita entertains the Indians with 
a Spanish dance, and it is during this 
dance that she manages to convey her 
lover the information that Santa Anna 
is about to attack the Americans in force. 

Conway returns with the warning to 
his comrades, who assemble in the old

Delegates To Attend 
ICG At Harrisburg 

Twenty-four members of the Political 
Science Club left yesterday for the 
three day State Intercollegiate Confer- 
ence on Government which is being held 
in Harrisburg. This convention is an an- 
nual affair attended by political science 
students from colleges throughout Penn- 
sylvania. The purpose of the convention 
is to give the students first-hand experi- 
ence in the field of politics, which in- 
cludes: conducting model legislative ses- 
sion, drawing up bills in committees, and 
running for elected offices. 

The Lebanon Valley students were se- 
lected to attend the convention on the 
basis of their participation and contribu- 
tion to the Political Science Club thru- 
out the year. They are: Howard Ancell, 
Fred Arnold, Norman Blantz, Harold 
Brandt, Ray Coble, Vernon Corby, Betty

Herbert Heffley, Gene Helms, Sidney 
Hofing, John Keiser, Edward Landis, 
Charles Reed, Donald Rowland, Philip 
Seltzer, Robert Smith, Frances Thomas, 
William Walborn, and Samuel Yeagley. 

Herbert Heffley, president of the Leba- 
non Valley Club, is running for the office 
of Parlimentarian at the State meeting. 
If elected, he will assist the Speaker in 
the model State General Session which 
is scheduled for Saturday. 

"Rose of the Alamo," the 1953 edi- 
tion of the annual May Day pageant, 
will bring a touch of Texas to Lebanon 
Valley's campus. The afternoon's en- 
tertainment, which will be held in honor 
of May Queen Joyce Hammock and her 
court, will begin at 2 p.m. on Saturday, 
May 2. Darlene Moyer and Bruce 
Thompson will be the featured perform- 
ers in the pageant, which is being direct- 
ed by Miss Betty Bowman, girls' physical 
education instructor. The story behind 
the production was written by Dr. 
George G. Struble. 

This year North Hall has been chosen 
as the stage for the proceedings. All 
performers will come from the gym- 
nasium and will proceed towards North 
Hall, where the May Queen and her 
court will be seated. The band will take 
its place between North Hall and the 
gym, while the traditional May Pole 
Dance will be situated slightly to the 
left of North Hall steps. 

A large covered wagon, which has 
been decorated with approximately fif- 
teen hundred paper flowers made by 
girls' gym classes, will be sure to catch 
the eye as one of the main items of 
scenery. In the center of the grassy 
"stage" a large fireplace will be seen, 
while an Indian tepee, situated to the 
left side, finishes the main stage setting. 


May Queen Joyce Hammock, at- 
tended by her court, will proceed to her 
throne to open the day's proceedings. 
Ten pages will attend the royal court. 
The seven small girl pages are daugh- 
ters of faculty and administration mem- 
bers, while the three boys are faculty 
grandchildren, whose parents are Leb- 
anon Valley graduates. The children 
are as follows: Carol Ehrhart, Andrea 
Harriman, Betty Stachow, Nan Smith, 
Ann Bollinger, Susie Sloca, Valerie Par- 
sons, Gregory Paine (grandson of Dr. 
A. H. M. Stonecipher,) Billy Grimm 
(grandson of both Dr. Samuel Grimm 
and Dr. William Wilt,) and John Lynch 
(grandson of the late Dr. Clyde A. 


Darlene Moyer and Bruce Thompson 
will be featured as the leading mem- 
bers of the "Rose of the Alamo" cast, 
Darlene in the role of Rosita, the 
Spanish girl, and Bruce as Conway, 
the American cowboy. Darlene, who is 
appearing as May Day's star for the 
third consecutive year, will dance a 
solo number entitled "Spanish Dance" 
to the music of "Cielito Lindo" and will 
also appear in several other group dance 
numbers. Darlene, a junior language 
major from Reading, Penna., has al- 
ready made a name for herself on L. 
V.'s campus in many dramatic produc- 
tions and for her excellent dancing 
ability. Last summer she was a mem- 
ber of a summer stock company in 
Massachusetts and later danced at the 
Roxy Theatre in New York.

It seems to me that we came to school in September, got on a roller 
coaster, and dashed through to May without stopping for a breath. But in the 
meantime a lot has happened anyway. Do you remember the conserv's first 
public appearance when the band marched on the field at the P.M.C. game? 
They really did themselves up proud at the Homecoming Game when they 
gave the alumni an account of post graduate days. Julie Ulrich and Charlie 
Hughes made a good bride and groom, didn't they? And on October four- 
teenth everybody got up from the supper table to catch the bus into the first 
Community Concert where Camella Williams, that wonderful negro soprano, 
was appearing. Later on we heard the Longine Symphonette, the Columbia 
Concert Trio, which was outstanding, and the famous Robert Shaw Chorale. 

The conserv came forth again when we presented our annual conserv 
benefit show under the able directorship of Jean Stahle. Marcus Sneezerhand 
and Alvaretta Noser were called back for a command performance of the 
Ballet Rush. Al must have lost ten pounds that week, a help to his diet. All 
of this led up to the Conserv Formal for which we were making money. The 
Blue Ridge Country Club looked its best that night with the high Christmas tree 
that John Ralston provided and so conscientiously decorated. 

The student teachers were glad for the P.M.E.A. convention in December. 
They managed to gather a lot of useful paraphanalia and literature of the ex- 
hibits for future reference in teaching days. Every publishing company in the 
country must have our names on their mailing list. Among the other things we 
were rushing to get in our schedule that month was the symphony concert. 
The orchestra did a good job on the Listz Piano Concerto with Miss Stagg as 
piano soloist. Remember this year's glee club tour and the new style choir 
gown with the bustle up the back that Dick Besecker so gracefully modeled? 
This effect is achieved with a special type safety pin; see Dick Hornberger for 
further information. Those were the good old days! 

The glee club still spends its Sunday afternoons accompanying the concert 
band on trips to all points south and west for performances, and the concert 
at the Forum had a tremendous turn-out. Elma Jean Swope sings an alluring 
Carmen and Ronnie Steele plays a wicked violin. That afternoon Prof. Rutledge 
provided a dinner at Van's on Route 22 for all concerned, and believe me, every- 
one made the most of it. 

Then there was the annual scholarship week-end here on campus. That's 
the time of year that all conserv men — and the college guys — got a synopsis 
of future date bait. Too bad the faculty doesn't judge scholarship students by 
looks. That Friday night the College Orchestra performed and the glee club 
gave its concert for prospective students. 

During basketball season the German band rose to fame along with the 
basketball players when they accompanied the team to Philadelphia and North 
Carolina. Those were good write-ups they got in the papers. 

All year the conserv was working on that final outburst when we gave 
our spring festival with the large chorus that sang the Requiem. That week-end we 
had two outstanding soloists from the Robert Shaw Chorale. They were among 
the best guest performers we've had for the chorus in several years, and even 
brought their relatives along to help in the chorus. 

It looks like the last performances of the year for the conserv will be 
the glee club and band appearances in May Day and the glee club number at 
graduation. I see the girls are going to give the boys' band a run for their 
money when they give their concert in the middle of May. It's going to be 
an all talent show, something new and different for them. 

In the meantime you can hear the echoes of voice lessons over at the Ad. 
building, people plugging away at piano practicing, and the remarks of the 
student teachers down at the Co-ed after their trip to Hershey. They spend 
most of their spare time there nowadays. Looking back, it seems like there 
could never be a year quite as full as this one, but I suppose we'll go on 
filling up the calendar for a long time. 

Here's a note on a former L. V. C. student: Kathleen Garis, a '48 conserv 
graduate, recently received a Ford scholarship. She will be traveling through 
California Texas, New Orleans, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia on

The following letter is certain to be of 
interest to Lebanon Valley students: 

April 24, 1953 


La Vie Collegienne 

I am sure that the student body would 
be pleased to know of the excellent re- 
sponse of students and faculty members 
of the college to the Red Cross Blood 
Donor Campaign in Lebanon on March 
17. Of the 172 persons in the county who 
participated in the effort on that date, 
fifty-eight were members of the student 
body, faculty, and administration of Leb- 
anon Valley College. This figu-e repre- 
sents about twice the number that the 
local chapter members had asked the stu- 
dent committee to secure as donors. It 
will also be noted that approximately 
one-third of the participants in the pro- 
gram in March represented the college. 
The officers of the local chapter remark- 
ed to me that only the tremendous en- 
thusiasm of the students of L. V. C. en- 
abled the local group to meet its quota 
for the first time in some years. They 
have asked me to express their warm 
thanks and appreciation to all those who 
participated in the March appeal. 

I am certain that our students will sup- 
port this important appeal in succeeding 
months. I have the assurance of the ad- 
ministration that it will do everything 
possible to enable our students to visit 
the Bloodmobile when in this area. The 
student committee will enlist blood don- 
ors in the future in the same manner as 
in March. The next visit of the Blood- 
mobile to Lebanon is May 13.

Review of 

by Pat Satterthwaite 

Thursday evening, April 23, marked 
the beginning of the Underclassmen 
weekend. Maxwell Anderson's Joan of 
Lorraine given by Wig and Buckle com- 
posed the entertainment for Thursday 
night. Roses to Joan Rosenberry, Claire 
Kelly, and Tom Wolfgang. The actors 
and Dr. Sloca outdid themselves to come 
through with a fine performance. 

The play itself was a bit disconnected 
until the second act got under way. The 
first act contained too many words and 
jumbled scenes. The impression portray- 
ed was that a play was being rehearsed 
and that there was some conflict between 
the leading lady and the director. Here 
and there a scene of Joan was enacted, 
but there wasn't enough to the scenes to 
give one a good picture of the situation. 
However, from the start of the second 
act the action picked up and the tale be- 
gan to connect. Joan of Lorraine seems 
to be the kind of drama that is food for 
thought. The more one ponders over 
the play, the more is derived from it. As 
I watched the show Thursday night I 
wasn't too impressed; however, the more 
I think about it the more impressed I 
become with the message it gave. Mary 
Grey was right in not wanting Joan to be 
portrayed as a person who put up with 
evil, but she had to realize that there is 
always evil in the world. Even though 
Joan did work with the money-crazy 
Dauphin and his friends, she only did 
what she felt was God's will. The fact 
that Joan finally faced the fire proved to 
Mary that her goodness did conquer the 
evil with which she was faced. 

To me this is the message of the play; 
evil, yes, but above all goodness shall 

Here are some miscellaneous tidbits 
from The Muhlenberg Weekly: 

A man named Finkelbergersteinholt- 
zenhoffman, went to court to have his 
name changed to Kelly. 

"Why?" asked the judge. 

"Business reasons," came the reply. 

"So ordered." 

In a year he was back before the 
same judge and wanted to be known 
as Murphy. 


"Because, whenever I tell anybody 

my name he looks at me and says, 

"What was it before it was Kelly?"

Have you noticed that the modern 
wedding rings are very, very thin and 
narrow? The old fashioned ones were 
heavy and cumbersome — but, of course, 
they were made to last a life time! 

On the subject of wedding rings the 
Idaho Argonaut has this to say: 

A wedding ring is like a tourniquet 
— it stops the circulation. 


York College contributes another re- 
freshing phrase on the same subject. 

One of my better buddies brought this 
to me and told me I had better take it 
seriously. He should know; he is 
married. "This," is a piece of blue 
paper with these words printed on it: 
"Courtship may make a man spoon, 
but marriage makes him fork over." 

On tru'h and virtue, also from York 

Thomas Mann, who may or may not 
be related to our own John, has this 
to say about truth: "A harmful truth 
is better than a useful lie." 

* * * * 

A local man in the cafe the other 
night explained his motive for telling 
the truth in this manner, "If you lie, 
you have to remember. I'm too lazy 
for that." 


And from the Campus Reflector 

One learns virtue at mother's knee, 
but vice at some other joint. 


A word of warning to you drivers: 
Men still die with their boots on, 
but that boot is often on the accelera-

Are you afraid?"

of your mouth."

come to replace it.

The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. The 
treasurer's report was given with a known balance of $144.50 in the Student 
Faculty allowance. 

A report on the organization of next year's social calendar was given. The 
athletic calendar for baseball, basketball, and football has been completed and 
it was decided that other scheduling of activities will proceed from that point. 
It was affirmed that all activities are expected to be applied for by May 15th 
by the individual organization. Discussion concerning the arrangements of the 
calendar and method of scheduling by way of the newly-formed committee was 
discussed and agreed upon. A preliminary list of available dates for meetings 
will be given to the newly elected officers of each club and they will choose 
from that list their club's choices of dates for meetings. This calendar will be 
co-ordinated with the Conservatory calendar. 

It was then moved and seconded that the Student Faculty purchase letter- 
head stationery and printed post cards for the coming year. The motions were 

The French Club made a request for a $15.00 appropriation to cover ex- 
penses of a movie which they are going to present at the Astor theater in the 

The fact that the dates for the dramatic productions have been called for 
before May 8 was discussed and clarified. 

Dean Hays then offered apologies for the hasty action taken by the administra- 
tion upon hearing the rumors of a probable dormitory raid. He also clarified 
the date for the election and submission of the names of the newly elected 
officers of organizations. The date is May 19. 

The motion for adjournment was made and seconded. 

Respectfully submitted, Gail Edgar, Secretary

On Wednesday, May 13, the Bloodmobile will be in Lebanon at the Masonic 
Home on Eighth Street. Arrangements have been approved by President Miller 
so that participating students may be excused from classes. The excuse blanks 
will be used as they were in March. Further information will be put on the

All students under 21 must have a permission blank signed by their parents 
or guardian. Those may be obtained from Mr. Shay, Mr. Keller, Mr. Marquette, 
or Mr. Fairlamb. 

Remember to give! It may be your brother, your sweetheart, — or even 
yourself— who will receive it when it is needed!

Girls' Band Plans 
Concert May 15 

The Girls' Band, under the direction of 
Professor Edward P. Rutledge, will pre- 
sent a varied program in Engle Hall on 
May 15, 1953. The purpose of this pro- 
gram is to raise money to buy new uni- 
forms for the Girls' Band. The girls 
have not been able to perform during 
the halftime period at any football games 
or march in any parades because the 
uniforms previously worn by the organi- 
zation have gone out of style. They hope 
to make enough money through this con- 
cert to pay for at least part of the ex- 
pense of new uniforms. 

The program to be presented is guar- 
anteed to appeal to a majority of music 
lovers. The Band will play such well- 
loved marches as "The Thundere r " by 
John Phillip Sousa, and the "Rainbow," 
"Ballyhoo," and the "Blue and White' 
marches by J. J. Richards. Other instru- 
mental numbers include "The Fiesta-Paso 
Doble March" by E. O. Caneva and F. 
L. McAllister and "A Trumpeter's Lulla- 
by" by Le-oy Anderson, which features 
Gloria Ritter as trumpet soloist. The 
prog am will be highlighted by a number 
of specialties such as solos performed by 
members of the organization, a routine 
by the majorettes, and a fashion show of 
the old uniforms. 

The concert will conclude with the 
group of vocal numbers. These include 
"Adoration, Break Forth, O Beauteous 
Heav'nly Light" by Bach, "Joshua Fit de 
Battle ob Jericho," a Negro spiritual ar- 
ranged by Noble Cain, "The Younger 
Generation" by Aaron Copland, "Comin' 
Through the Rye" arranged by Harry 
Simeone, "Open Thy Heart" by Georges 
Bizet, and "Go, Song of Mine" by Frank 
B. Cookson.

has been a member of the Glee Club for 
the past three years. In addition to her 
choarl work, Joann has been soloist with 
the College Glee Club and Chorus and 
has sung solos on numerous occasions 
in churches in this vicinity. Her job as 
vice-p esident of Clio this year has given 
her training for her new position as pres- 

Dorothy, better known as Pinky, will 
work with Joann in the vice-presidential 
position. She has been a member of 
the SCA cabinet, is news editor of LA 
VIE, and is active in WAA and Green

Shakespeare Class Honors 
Playwright with Birthday Party 

"Happy Birthday, dear Will, on your 
389th." These words appeared last week 
on one of Fink's famed creations. No, 
the baker didn't make a mistake, nor did 
the buyer. The cake was bought in cele- 
bration of a birthday which, unfortunate- 
ly, had to be remembered without the 
honored guest himself. Nonetheless, Will- 
iam Shakespeare's birthday party was a 
huge success. 

The party all started when the mem- 
bers of Dr. Charles Sloca's Shakespears 
class learned that records show young 
William was born on April 23, 1564. It 
seemed only fitting that the class should 
forget their serious discussions for one 
day in order to honor the birth of the 
man who started this whole course (Eng- 
lish 30b.) Under the leadership of Ted 
Stagg, the grand affair was planned. 

Ten o'clock in the morning hardly 
seemed an appropriate hour for the cele- 
bration, but as this is the class's regular 
meeting hour, the drama enthusiasts went 
on with their work. A few disconcerted 
souls mumbled something about "cake 
making an awful breakfast," but the 
general feeling was one of appreciation 
and good will. 

Dr. Sloca had not been told of the 
cake and had planned a quiz for this 
Particular morning. To the enjoyment of 
all, his surprise was complete and ap- 
preciative. The quiz was soon forgotten 
as matters of the moment were investi- 
gated. One member of the class ran 
for film in order to record the event for 
Posterity while others crowded around 
the cake. 

There is no doubt about it — the cake 
really was a masterpiece. A one-layer, 
long sheet cake, it was white with purple 
decorations. Around the aforementioned 
birthday greeting were the names of 
Shakespeare's greatest plays — Hamlet, 
Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, and Romeo 
Juliet. Around the edge of the cake 
^ere written the last names of the six- 
teen class members and the instructor. 

Since the party was in honor of an 

Dr. Charles Sloca strikes a typical Shake- 
spearean pose as he prepares to cut the 
unusual birthday cake. 

English dramatist, tea seemed to be the 
appropriate beverage and was subse- 
quently provided. Jo Rosenberry served 
as pourer, while football players Sorren- 
tino and DeBenedett served the tea. Bar- 
bara Ranck cut the cake (after all the 
photographers were finished with it.) 

Thus, in a little classroom in Washing- 
Ion Hall, William Shakespeare was given 
another honor to add to the thousands 
which have already been heaped upon 

Members of the Shakespeare class, in 
addition to those already mentioned, in- 
clude Jim Baker, Joan Bair, Evelyn Eby, 
Grace Frick, Allan Koppenhaver, Jane 
McMurtrie, Harold Sandy, Richard 
Green, Neil Layser, Thomas Israel, and 
Flo Sauder. 

Ends Active Year 

Banquet at the Annville Legion on 
Tuesday, May 5, will terminate the year's 
program for the George D. Gossard 
chapter of FTA. Slides illustrating the 
activities of the club wil be shown after 
the banquet, which begins at 6:30 p.m. 

Outstanding among the work done by 
FTA this year was its role as host to 
the state FTA convention April 17 and 
18. Many letters have been received 
by the club's adviser, Dr. Gilbert D. 
McKlveen, expressing appreciation for 
the kindnesses shown to FTA delegates 
by all the students and faculty at Leba- 
non Valley. In the words of Dr. Mc- 
Klveen, "Our college FTA chapter cer- 
tainly thanks everyone at LVC and the 
people of Annville for the cooperation 
shown that week-end. It was really mag- 
nificent that such an undertaking turned 
out so successfully." Over two hundred 
and sixty delegates attended the conven- 
tion, representing twenty-six colleges and 
twenty-six high schools throughout the 
state. They were housed in fifty-two 
Annville homes as well as in the college 

Doris Bergamaschi, of Slippery Rock 
State Teachers College, was elected presi- 
ident of FTA for the coming year. Paul 
Starsnic, of Pittsburgh's Duquesne Uni- 
versity, will serve as first vice-president. 
Second vice-president Connie Whisler is 
from John Harris High School in Harris- 
burg. New secertary-treasurer is Rose 
Trimble from Edinboro State Teachers 
College. Others elected at the convention 
were members-at-large Paul Jorett, of 
East Stroudsburg State Teachers College, 
Thomas Stouffer, of Shippensburg State 
Teachers College, and Dorothy Spohn, of 
Reading High School. 


Guest speaker at the Illinois State Con- 
vention of FTA recently was national 
FTA head, Bill Shoppell, who is also 
graduating president of Lebanon Valley's 
FTA. The convention was at Pekin High 
School, near Peoria, Illinois, on Saturday, 
April 25. Addressing over two hundred 
FTA members on the topic, "There Isn't 
Room Enough," Bill stressed the appar- 
ent lack of time given to serious thought 
concerning teaching. He challenged his 
audience by raising the question that per- 
haps this lack exists in the minds of pres- 
ent teachers. In addition to delivering 
the keynote address, Bill also sang four 
selections at the opening session of the

STORY, from p. 1 

Franciscan Mission, the Alamo, to de- 
fend themselves. But the defense is fu- 
tile; of the 180 Americans all are killed 
except five. Conway is one of the sur- 
vivors. The five surrender, and Santa 
Anna orders them put to death. Once 
again Rosita plays the good angel and 
saves the life of her lover and his com- 
panions by substituting the corpses of 
dead soldiers for the supposedly executed 

Santa Anna has won a great military 
victory, but he is a superstitious man. 
The thought of the cold-blooded murder 
of the five survivors torments him. He 
and his followers — and Rosita, much 
against her will — are preparing to return 
across the Rio Grande when the Mexi- 
can soldiers are horrified at the appear- 
ance of five ghosts doing a phantom 
dance — as they suppose the ghosts of 
the murdered survivors. But Rosita rec- 
ognizes her lover and joins them in the 
dance. The Mexicans, believing she has 
been bewitched by the visitors from be- 
yond the grave, flee in terror. Rosita 
and her lover join hands as a new group 
of Americans arrive bearing a new flag 
and the announcement of the formation 
of the independent government of Texas.

Herb Ely is well-qualified for his new 
job, having edited the yearbook at Pen- 
nington Prep School in New Jersey. A 
native of Cleona, Herb is active in the 
Political Science Club here at LVC and 
writes sports for LA VIE. He is a politi- 
cal science major. 

Aaron Sheaffer has been active in the 
Student Christian Association as well 
as in church work at his home in Harris- 
burg. He is a pre-theological student and 
has been on the Dean's List since his 
freshman year. 

Nancy Daugherty, an English major 
from Carlisle, served as recording secre- 
tary of Delphian this year and has been

Ninteen members of the Resident Wo- 
men's Student Government Association 
and the Women's Commuter Council 
were guests at a Soiree on Thursday 
evening, April 23, in the Faculty House. 
This Soiree was given for the two gov- 
erning bodies by the Dean of Women, 
Miss Constance Dent. 

A delicious buffet supper was served 
by Mrs. Ruth Allwein, caterer, of the 
New England Pantry. The meal consist- 
ed of baked chicken with mushroom 
sauce, jello salad, baked corn, nuts, 
mints, cocoanut cream pie, and coffee. 
It was served in an atmosphere of soft 
lights and pleasant dinner music. 

Following the meal Dean Dent gave a 
few words of greeting, and expressed 
her appreciation for the fine work the 
two governing bodies have done through- 
out the year. She stated that women's 
student government on this campus has 
been highly commended by administra- 
tion, faculty, and students. Miss Florence 
Sauder, president of the Resident Wom- 
en's Government Association, took this 
opportunity to thank all those girls who 
had served with her during the year. She 
read to the group the letter which she 
had written to Dr. Miller concerning the 
Board's activities, and also the reply

Miss Doris Cortright, president of the 
Women's Council, spoke in behalf of 
her organization. She stressed the fact 
that the two organizations have been* 
working closer together this year, which

Miss Janice Walker, a member of the 
Resident Women's governing association, 
presented at this time a plan for a pro- 
gram that the two organizations are con-

The Place Where Students Congregate 
For a Bite to Eat In a Cheerful 


La Vie Collegienne, Friday, May 1, 1953 


Baseball Team Loses Twice 
After Swamping St. Joseph's 

The Lebanon Valley 1953 baseball 
team continued on their losing way these 
last few weeks. Except for a rousing 9-1 
win over St. Joseph's of Philadelphia, thz 
Flying Dutchmen have bitten the dust 
every game. Their record consists of one 
win and four defeats at this writing. 

In their second game of the season, 
after losing the opener to Temple at 
home 7-5, the Flying Dutchmen traveled 
up to Huntingdon to suffer their second 
straight defeat at the hands of Juniata, 
7-4. Bob Gustin, the starting pitcher, left 
after four innings of play after giving up 
six runs and five bases on balls. He was 
helped out of there by a two-run homer 
by Jake Handzeelk. He was followed by 
Al Boyer and Howard Kosier. The win- 
ning pitcher, Le Ferre, didn't have too 
good a day, but he had enough to get by 
Bob Tarantolo with three hits and Merle 
Wise and Richie Furda with two hits 
apiece, who sparked the Dutchmen's at- 

After failing to win a game in two 
starts, Lebanon Valley snapped their 
losing streak as they traveled to Phila- 
delphia and administered a 9-1 trimming 
to a surprised St. Joseph's nine. Coasting 
in on the three-hit pitching of Al Boyer 
and Howard Kosier, the Lebanon Valley 
attack was clicking on all cylinders in 
this one. Lou Sorrentino's two-run homer 
was the big blow of the game as Richie 
Furda continued his hot pace, getting 
three hits. Merle Wise also contributed 
to the attack by gaining a couple of hits. 


However, success went to the Dutch- 
men's heads, for they came back after 
their victory to lose two successive games 
in two days, one to Muhlenberg at Allen- 
town 4-3 and one to Juniata at Annville 
6-5. In the Muhlenberg game Gustin 
started and was the loser, Muhlenberg 
getting three of the four runs off of him. 
Muhlenberg fayed out to 4-2 lead at the 
end of three innings after trailing at the 
end of one and a half 2-0 and were 
headed. Dick Saddler, who relieved Jack 
Heme, limited the Dutchmen to only one 
hit for the last two innings. Lou Sorren- 
tion, who hit a triple, and Frank Retrievi, 
who had two singles, paced the Dutch- 
men at bat. 

In the Juniata game, the Indians pulled 
it out in the top half of the ninth inning 
by scoring one run to win 6-5. Howard 
Kosier, who relieved Leon Miller in that 
inning, was the loser. Mark Heberling 
was the batting star of the day for the 
Dutchmen with a triple and two doubles.

Knights To Award 
Maston Trophy 
At Sports Dinner 

On May 11, 1953, the Knights of the 
Valley will present its "Chuck" Maston 
Memorial Award to the outstanding ath- 
lete of the year. The award, which will 
be made at the annual All-Sports Ban- 
quet, is presented in memory of Charles 
"Chuck" Maston, who died in 1951 of 
leukemia. Chuck was a Knight and also 
participated in football and track. Be- 
sides being an outstanding athlete, he 
was active on campus and a friend to all. 

This award is given annually to a male 
member of a varsity team who has dis- 
played the exceptional qualities of sports- 
manship, leadership, cooperation, and 
spirit; the selection is made by a com- 
mittee composed of the President of the 
Athletic Council, Director of Athletics, 
head coach of each male varsity team, 
and the president of the Knights of the 
Valley. The name of the person chosen 
will not be revealed until the night of 
the banquet, at which time the award 
will be presented by the president of the 
Knights of the Valley. 

Last year, Fred Sample received the 
honor of being chosen for this award.

ability in art and music. He has drawn 
many of the unusual posters advertising 
campus activities, and he was one of a 
dance duo which presented the Charles- 
ton in the "Fizzle Follies of 1952." 
In May Day, Bruce will be a member 
of several dance groups and will also 
do several portions as solos. 

Robert Krieg, who has also appear- 
ed in many campus plays and is a 
veteran May Day performer, will enact 
the part of the villain, Santa Anna, the 
Mexican general. Humor for the after- 
noon will be provided by Marjorie Boltz 
in the role of Stony-Face, an Indian. 
Marjorie is sure to look unique, as she 
will have a white face, with pink neck 
and hands. 


During the progress of the action, 
many dances will take place; some will 
be group and some solo numbers. The 
dances, which are being directed by 
Miss Bowman, will be performed main- 
ly by girls of the physical education 

One of the program's first numbers 
will be a group dance featuring a very 
talented horse doing dance steps with 
the others. Very few spectators will 
recognize majorettes Joyce Hill and Jane 
Smith in the role of the horse. Music 
for the number is "On the Trail." 

The Indian Ceremonial Dance is 
distinguished from the rest, for it was 
completely student originated and di- 
rected. The routine was planned and 
will be executed by a class composed 
mainly of conservatory students. It 
will be performed to the music of the 
"Daggar Dance" from Natoma Opera 
by Victor Herbert. 

The Phantom Dance, to the music of 
"Danse Macabre" is another featured 
number and will be done by Bruce 
Thompson, Donald Griffith, Harold 
Weber, Ben Lutz, and Joel Wiest. Fol- 
lowing the dance, the band will strike 
up the music of "Wagon Wheels" and 
the large covered wagon will be rolled 
to the opposite side of the stage. 

Square dancing in the middle of the 
campus will be seen in what may prove 
the most active dance number. En- 
titled the "Texas Independence Dance" 
this will be one of the concluding num- 
bers of the pageant and will be done 
by thirty-two boys and girls to the 
music of "Turkey in the Straw." 

At the conclusion of the pageant, 
the traditional and colorful May Pole 
Dance will be featured. Eighteen junior

Thursday, May 21, 1953 

Elementary Education, Phys Ed 
To Be Offered in September 

Grade school teachers and girls' gym teachers will soon be graduated by 
Lebanon Valley in addition to music teachers and high school teachers, for the 
college has received approval from the State Council of Education to offer 
programs of study in elementary teaching and health and physical education 
for women. 

The two four-year courses will start in September, 1953, although some 
courses in elementary education will be given this summer. The bachelor of 
science degree will be awarded for the satisfactory completion of either of these 
courses of study. The physical education program is open only to new students 
and present freshmen, but both freshmen and sophomores may change to ele- 
mentary education. 

A professor of mathematics and a 
professor of elementary education will 
join the faculty in the fall, according to 
dean of the college, Dr. Howard M. 
Kreitzer. The college also plans to 
add to the faculty a full or part-time 
teacher of health and physical educa- 
tion and an art instructor, who will only 
be employed part-time. 

Next year, the only new courses be- 
ing offered in connection with the ele- 
mentary education program are Intro- 
duction to Art first semester and Health 
and Safety Education, second semester; 
otherwise, students enrolled in this cur- 
riculum will have to take the courses 
usually open to freshmen. However, 
in the following years they will have 
to take several new courses in addition 
to those regularly required of all col- 
lege upperclassmen. 

As sophomores they will have In- 
troduction to Music, Teaching of Music, 
and Teaching of Art. Classes in teach- 
ing arithmetic, natural sciences, and 
social sciences as well as a geography 
course will be required of juniors. The 
teaching of reading and language arts 
and of health and physical education 
will be taught to seniors. They will 
also be instructed in professional orienta- 
tion and elementary school curriculum. 

Students planning to study in the 
health and physical education for wo- 
men curriculum will be required to take 
throughout their four years here an 
even greater number of courses which 
will be offered here for the first time. 
These include Personal and Community 
Hygiene, Chemistry and Nutrition, Ana- 
tomy, Physiology, Leadership and Pro- 
tective Procedures, Organization and 
Administration, Mental Hygiene, and 
Teaching of Health. Physical educa- 
tion activities and courses in dancing,

Planned At Retreat 

The Student Christian Association 
held its annual Spring Retreat on Satur- 
day, May 9, at Mt. Gretna Park. About 
thirty members of this year's cabinet 
and the newly elected cabinet of next 
year were present. Dr. Maynard Sparks 
and Professor Ehrhart were faculty ad- 
visors in attendance. 

The SCA president, Glenn Dietrich, 
opened the retreat in the morning with a 
short worship period. A business meet- 
ing followed in which the past year's 
SCA events were evaluated. Follow- 
ing lunch, Lucie Portier, the new presi- 
dent for 1953-54, met with the new 
cabinet and set dates and formulated 
plans for the coming year. For rec- 
reation the group enjoyed volleyball 
and Softball. 

An impressive vesper service follow- 
ing the evening meal closed the day's

That Old School Spirit 

You know, we hear a lot and read numerous articles about "school spirit," 
that this school has it and that one doesn't. "School spirit" does this, causes 
that. Everyone, or nearly everyone and his brother talks about "school spirit." 
Yet no one stops to analyze just what "school spirit" is — what its ramifications 
are. (There is no definition for it in Webster, Frosh, so don't go paging, though 
it would be a good theme topic for those English professors to issue.) 

The general subject of "school spirit" seems primarily to entail cheering 
sections, pep rallies, and the team following. There is, however, more to it 
than this, though these things do play a large part in the subject. 

School spirit is sticking up for your school, your college, when someone 
is knocking it down with disparaging remarks. It is advertising your school al- 
ways in a good light. It is acting like ladies and gentlemen when and where 
we should, especially on other campuses. School spirit is cracking those books, 
keeping the marks up, stabilizing and placing at a higher level our class scholastic 
average and ultimately the school's. It is supporting our class, its activities, 
our club's activities, the other organizations, the other classes. It is the friendly 
rivalry among societies, clubs, fraternities, trying to see who 'can create the best 
float, the best play, etc. It is raiding the dining hall, swiping the silver and the 
chairs, relieving the ad building of its door knobs, or setting the clock off. 

School spirit is pitching in and lending a hand in school-wide functions like 
May Day. It is handing out bouquets at the right time and offering criticism 
where it will do best. It is going out there and cheering for all you're worth 
while the guys on the field or court play their best for the school. Yes, it's 
cheering for all you're worth, especially when the chips are down. 

Above all, school spirit is being interested, active alumni, trying to improve 
the college, contributing in part the debt we surely owe to it. 

School spirit is something that radiates. We can't keep it in, else it 
wouldn't be spirit. That's why we here at the Valley cannot see our own 
spirit to appreciate it. But ask other people, outside people, other-college students. 
They'll tell you: "You have it!" Let's keep it, huh? 

A Senior 

A Call For Big Sisters and Brothers 

Last week in chapel we were asked to sign our names if we wished to 
have a little sister or little brother from next year's group of freshmen. Since 
most of the resulting contacts are made during the summer or at the beginning 
of the year, this would be an excellent opportunity for all of us to review our 
responsibilities in this program, which is sponsored annually by the Student 
Christian Association. 

First of all, it should be stressed that as many of us as possible are 
needed to help. In the past those in charge of the program have been plagued 
with the problem of having too few big sisters and brothers to go around. 
Since the incoming freshman class is usually large in comparison to the other 
classes, many people are needed. Also, a large choice of names insures better 
matching of people who live near each other, have the same major, etc. The 
day students especially have lagged behind in the number of volunteer big 
brothers and sisters. This is not a good situation, for freshmen day students 
should be matched with upperclassmen day students in order that they may 
discuss problems common to their group. So all of us, dorm or day students, 
sophomores, juniors, or seniors, should sign up today if we have not already 
done so. Women should see Jane Lower and men, DeWitt Zuse. 

When we do receive the name of our little sister or brother during the 
summer, let's all resolve to put forth a special effort to become acquainted with 
them. If they live near us, wouldn't a telephone call or a lunch together be 
especially helpful? If we must meet each other through correspondence, let's 
make those letters long and interesting, full of hints about college life at Leb- 
anon Valley College and how to adjust to it. 

Our biggest job, though, will come in the fall when we all meet on the 
campus. Several events will be planned for us in which we will be asked to 
talk with our little sisters or brothers or attend some function together. For 
heaven's sake, let's not be too busy to carry out these duties. But let's go a 
little farther and do more than is expected. How about a coke at Hot Dog's 
together, a movie or two at the Astor, introductions to our upperclassmen 
friends who will undoubtedly seem like rather strange, mature beings to the 
freshmen! If you don't think the freshmen will appreciate those extra gestures, 
just think back to your own days as a lowly frosh. Most of us can remember 
at least one lonely session in our rooms, perhaps with some of that typical 
Annville rain falling outside, when we wished we were home or wondered how 
we ever got here in the first place. Adjusting to college life is a major opera- 
tion, and anything we can do to make someone adjust more quickly and happily 
will certainly be worthwhile. 

Even after those first few weeks are over, it would be fine if we would 
take a special interest in our particular freshman for the remainder of the year. 
Perhaps we'll find that we'll learn a lot from them too, and perhaps some 
lasting friendships will be formed. 

So let's all make a New School Year's Resolution to show the incoming 
freshmen what a friendly campus this is through personal contacts in the Little 
Sister-Big Sister, Little Brother-Big Brother Program. The freshmen will really 
appreciate it and we'll have fun ourselves. 


We would like to take the opportunity 
here and now to thank the entire student 
body for the tremendous cooperation 
given to us by you on the cheering line 
this year. The spirit exhibited by all of 
you was heartwarming and nothing short 
of sensational. You have always respond- 
ed with enthusiastic spirit in your cheer- 
ing whether we were behind in the score 
or not. Believe us, that wonderful tribute 
has touched the hearts of many people — 
ask anyone in Raleigh. The basketball 
team especially, we are sure, joins us 
in both praising and thanking you for 
staying behind them win or lose. Anyone 
can cheer when his team is ahead. When 
their team is behind with the chips down 
is when most cheering sections fade. Not 
ours this year! You never let them down, 
nor us. 

We have had a lot of fun over the last 
four years — pep rallies, snake dances, 
cheerleading at games. We saw a lot of 
wins; we saw some losses. One thing was 
evident; the spirit was increasing pro- 
gressively each year. The acme, the pin- 
nacle, was reached this year. Our efforts 
and the rest of the squad's were rewarded 
ten-fold. We thank you for a job well 
done, asking only that you underclass- 
men give next year's squad, co-captained 
by Darlene Moyer and Paul Holligan, 
the same cooperation and the same spirit 
that we enjoyed this year. 

The best to you all in your endeavors. 
See you around —

In spite of the (excuse the expres- 
sion) stolen instruments and mouth 
pieces and consequently the few re- 
hearsals which the girls had, they cer- 
tainly came through with flying colors 
last Friday evening when they present- 
ed their First Annual All Girl Glee 
Club and Band Concert. The purpose 
of this concert was to raise money to 
pay for new uniforms for the organiza- 
tion. The ones worn in previous years 
are very much out of style as the four 
models so capably demonstrated during 
one of the band marches. Well, in 
every respect the girls were successful. 
They sold tickets, solicited patrons and 
sponsors, and sold refreshments after 
the concert, making the affair a finan- 
cial success. Their enthusiasm, dili- 
gence, and sparkling appearance as well 
as their musical interpretation made the 
concert a successful experience to all 
who performed and all who listened. 
In addition, we liked to give our con- 
gratulations to Betty Jane Swisher for 
her fine marimba playing and to Ruth 
Dalbeck and Tom Israel for their 
splendid organ-piano duet. 


"Hear lies the Class of 1953, dead 
of an attitude complex," — this is the 
inscription found on the grave dug in 
front of the conservatory last week. 
This is just one of the pranks perform- 
ed by the senior class. It seems that 
they have enjoyed their trip to Hershey 
every day to such an extent that they 
wanted to bring part of it back to the 
campus so that we might all appreciate 
their rich experience. Thus, the Burma 
Shave signs planted between North Hall 
and the Conserv, "Substitutes can do 
more harm than city fellers on a 
farm." They certainly have started 
something. Now the Williams Shaving 
Company would like to plant their signs 

Speaking of stolen instruments, the 
question of the month is, "Who done 
it?" The seniors will not admit to 
any accusations on the subject. We've 
tried to look at the question objectively. 
Who has the most to gain from the 


Sixth Column 

Symptoms of summer have been replacing signs of spring around campus 
this month as we near exam time and graduation. Sunbathing and swimming 
have become favorite pastimes of LVC folks. These hot days the most 
attractive prace to spend an afternoon is the old quarry, where you can enjoy 
a mighty cool swim. 

Studying under nature's sun lamp is killing two birds with one stone, provided 
you've an alarm clock with you so that you don't get scorched to death when you 
fall asleep over that history! Or maybe you can be like the girls in their gym 
classes — get sunburned while having fun horse-back riding. 

But signs of spring aren't entirely missing from campus — how about those 
Burma Shave signs? "Substitutes can do more harm than city fellers on a farm." 
Really? Then what are they doing on our campus? 

Of Funerals, Dandelions, and Shorts 

Who buried the class of '53 in front of the conserv last week? "Died 
because of attitude complex" read the sign over a mound of fresh earth and 
newly-dug flowers. But the seniors were still attending classes last week, or were 
we seeing ghosts? 

One group that almost did get buried alive last week, though, was the 
West Hall aggregation. The dandelions were growing so rapidly around the 
dorm that the porch would soon have been hidden from view if the lawn had 
not been trimmed. Now it's the neatest lawn around any campus building . . . 
Well, ahem, that is, until the next rainy week — then the grass will be as high 
as the peonies! 

Though spring's past, new styles still spring up every now and then. For 
instance, what are Willie Lutz and Bob Krieg trying to prove with their "Ber- 
muda shorts"? 

Students have really been feasting at the many banquets and picnics wind- 
ing up various activities on campus. Wasn't that French bread delicious at the 
French club picnic? 

How about the ham dinner at the W. A. A. banquet? And everyone was 
really surprised at the entertainment which followed. It was difficult to say 
who enjoyed it the most, the laughing audience or the initiates who had fun 
organizing the show and got a big kick out of it themselves. As Miss Bowman 
tersely remarked, "We had good ham in food and entertainment." 


Is daydreaming a symptom of summer? One might have thought that the 
girls in gen. ed. 20 recently were daydreaming as they stared out the window. 
On the contrary, they were intently watching a man working on the roof of the 

Daydreaming can be pleasant this time of year: thoughts of summer jobs,, 
new romances, different activities. Or do you dream of leaving good friends, 
saying goodbye to that special somebody for a couple months, working in a 
strange town next fall? Perhaps, because this is the time of mixed emotions 
for all of us. 

But it's really been a wonderful year, so if your reminiscing ever gets on 
a too sentimental track, just switch over to those happy memories of this year 
which you'll never forget: Homecoming Week-end, the Fordham game, the 
Junior Prom, to mention just a few. 

Remember May Day too. That was quite an undertaking, and a note of 
thanks should certainly be extended to all who participated. The cooperation 
of everyone was greatly appreciated by the faculty members in charge. 

The Big Day Is Coming 

Members of a gen. ed. 30 class were recently reminded of how close 
graduation is when they heard the glee club practicing for commencement. 
That "Alleluia" resounded so clearly that someone declared "We're in heaven!" 
Maybe you would be in heaven, figuratively speaking, if you received a gradua- 
tion gift like Grace Frick did. Isn't her new Ford splendid? 

At any rate, when the last diploma has been handed out, the last musical 
chord has faded away, and the last fond farewell has been spoken, we know 
that each and every senior will feel a moment of regret that the work of four 
years, the friendships with other students and teachers, and the many activities 
have come to an end. As they go forth to their chosen career, the good wishes 
of underclassmen, faculty, and administration will surely go with them. 

Pinky's Pitter Patter 

What are you going to do with your 'spare time' between exams? I've 
approached LV students with this question for the past week and have had 
various responses. My own roommate, Betty Jane Swisher, just looked at me 
and then broke into a laugh. Wonder what she meant by that? 

When I approached Jan Walker, she looked up from her 18th Century 
French book and replied, "Take cold showers and drink black coffee." I'd say 
that's good advice if you aren't already super-saturated with black coffee. 

Nancy Daugheriy is going to join the annual Canasta Tournament in North 
Hall just as she did last year. She added, "Maybe I'll catch up on some rest 
and sleep after the extremely heavy social schedule which has been particularly 
exhausting this spring." 

I think I caught Bill Shoppell off guard. "I'm going to see if I can 
borrow more 'Burma Shave' signs. They go so well with the tall grass." It 
seems you've dug your own grave, Bill. 

A smile came to Janie Lower's face as she said, "I'm going to sport around 
in my roommate's new car." 

Perhaps it's a good thing that I can't remember who said, "I will hit all 
the high spots just one more time. When my worries and troubles have been 
thoroughly saturated, I will visit the quarry and let the sun do the rest." I sure 
wish I had a better memory. 

"A few rounds of golf and couple of dips in the Hershey pool would be 
nice if the weather stays sunny," stated Tom Price. 

Ann Rydberg has decided "to read a good book while munching between- 
meal snacks." It sounds like a good idea if you have the food. 

Asserted John Sant Ambrosio, "Well, between my trips to the tennis courts 
and the post office, I don't think I'll even have time to pack, smoke my choice 
Havana cigars, or even listen to some of my favorite 'Dixie-land' jazz records." 

Bill Trostle said emphatically that in his 'sparetime' he would "Sleep!" 

"I'm going to get up every morning for breakfast; study ten hours; practice 
voice, and piano; and go to bed every night at 11," replied Joann Butt. Any 
day she gets up for breakfast . . . 

A very well-stated philosophy came from the lips of Lee Thorpe: "Eat, 
drink and be merry, for tomorrow — I may flunk." 

Bob Jenkins says he'll "be pretty busy running between the library and the 
Hotel" — for grapefruit drys, I assume. 

As for myself, I am at the point of great indecision. Should I read Mickey 
Spiilane or drown myself in Kreider's Lake? 








La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, May 21, 1953 


Campus Mailbox 

Here are some words of wisdom from 
The Susquehanna. 

We always hear how dumb dogs are, 
They use all limbs to walk. 
For it is true, we use but two, 
And dogs can't even talk. 

They cannot understand our words, 
Response — just some dumb looks, 
I'll come clean, in the dogs I've seen, 
None were reading books. 

Yes, all these things we say are true, 
And surely there are more, 
But I've never heard in this wide world 
Of dogs in a global war. 

Here're some things for seniors to re- 

The nice thing about a college educa- 
tion is that it enables us to worry about 
things all over the world. — Cavalier 

Now I lay me down to sleep 
The prof is dull, the subject's deep 
If he should stop before I wake 
Give me a poke, for heaven's sake! 

— Campus Reflector 

Are our nurses like this? 

A student went to the infirmary. 
"Doc," he said, "I feel so bad I some- 
times think of killing myself." 

"Now, now," soothed the doctor, "you 
just let us take care of that." — Campus 

Here's what the Tower Times has tak- 
en from other papers. 

Students in math have come up with 
some interesting definitions of a circle. 
They are: 

"A circle is a line of no depth running 
around a dot forever." 

"A circle is a round line with no kinks 
in it, joined up so as not to show where 
it began." 

"A circle is a line which meets up with 
its other end without ending." 

—The Bowling Green "B-G News" 
Student teacher's lament: 
Onward, onward, oh time in thy flight 
Make me a graduate just over night. 

— The Slippery Rock "Rocket" 

Lost: A fountain pen by a young lady 
half full of ink. — The Appalachian. 

Daff Definitions: 

Teacher: A textbook wired for sound. 

Hamburger: A steak that didn't pass its 
physical. — The Keystonian. 

And the last word for this year is 
about girls. 

Girls when they went out to swim 
Once dressed like Mother Hubbard; 
Now they have a different whim 
And dress more like her cupboard. 

CONSERV NOTES, from page 2 
sudden disappearance of the instru- 
ments? It must be the Frosh or the 
Sophs, because they are the only ones 
that have instrumental classes. When 
I think about it though, the juniors 
may have been in on it, or — it may 
have been the profs anxious for a va- 
cation because that's where all the 
gray matter is. Well, anyway we're 
not giving up on the subject. If you 
have any clues, please send them in 
via the underground. 


We officially say adieu to the seniors, 
whom we will always remember for 
their good humor and personalities. 
We wish them the best of everything 
in their future employment. And to 
the rest, well, whatever you'll be doing 
this summer, have fun but don't for- 
get to practice your scales and arpeggios. 
There's another year ahead.

High School Principal 
Addresses Local F.T.A. 

Charles E. Gaskins, principal of Leba- 
non Senior High School, was guest speak- 
er at the annual banquet of Future 
Teachers of America. This affair at the 
Annville Legion on May 5 culminated 
the year's activities for the college FTA 

In his speech, Mr. Gaskins stressed 
the fact that teachers must expect to meet 
the unexpected at any time during their 
careers. To illustrate this idea he related 
several unusual incidents which had oc- 
curred unexpectedly in both the class- 
room and extra-curricular activities as 
well as on field trips. 

Retiring from the presidency of FTA, 
Bill Shoppell spoke a few words of ap- 
preciation to club members and their ad- 
viser and his wife, Dr. and Mrs. Gilbert 
D. McKlveen, for the "splendid coopera- 
tion they have shown this year." Then 
he terminated his duties by handing down 
the miniature school desk, the emblem of 
his office, to his successor, Barbara 

A Newspaper's Credo - - 

University of Miami): 

. . .The Hurricane is one of the most 
free college papers in the country. Never 
has it been censored, regulated or con- 
trolled by anyone other than the students 
who edit it. 

. . .The University administration cannot 
set policies, and the faculty cannot give 
directions. The Student Association does 
not govern a word that goes into the 
Hurricane, nor does any other faction of 
the school. 

. . .The Hurricane earns its right to be 
free by assuming certain responsibilities. 
A constant vigilance is maintained by 
editors trained to watch out for stories 
that may be unjustly harmful. There can 
be no freedom without responsibility. 
. . . But there are many attempts made 
to infringe on the freedom of the Hurri- 
cane. Would-be censors feel justified in 
their attempts. So do pressure groups. A 
college newspaper will fail in its purpose 
if outside students or administration un- 
justly attempt to control the paper. 
. . . Why do many feel that freedom of 
the press should be denied to a college 
newspaper? There is no control whatso- 
ever put on a professional paper. Any 
city paper in the country will fight for 
the freedom of any other city paper. 
Without this freedom, democracy would 
wither and die. 

It is just as important that a college 
paper remain free of control. A college 
is the training ground of America. A col- 
lege paper is the proving ground of jour- 
nalism — and the future of our democratic 
way of life. 

Can you imagine our U.S.A. without a 
free press? Can you imagine a commu- 
nity with a controlled press? 

The University is the nation in minia- 
ture. . .The university needs a free press. 
Only that way can it be protected, and 
only that way can students get tc know 
their school, both the good and the bad 
of it. 

Criticism founded on knowledge holds 
democracy together. 

Any student in the University can help 
run The Hurricane merely by showing 
effort and aptitude, and undergoing the 
training that all editors have received. 

The Hurricane knows its responsibili- 
ties. It will always follow them. The 
Hurricane is free. It should always be

Senior Ball Climaxes 
Class of '53 Events 

The annual Senior Ball, for members 
of the graduating class and their guests, 
was held last Saturday, May 15, at the 
Palmyra Legion Home. This year the 
event opened with a banquet, at which 
senior class president Eugene Tritch

Blue and White Defeats F & M in Baseball, 
Bows to Moravian and Elizabethtown 

Lebanon Valley closed out its regu- 
larly scheduled thirteen ball games 
with a poor record of three wins and 
ten defeats. In their last six games the 
Dutchmen were only able to salvage 
two; however, they did manage to win 
a very coveted F&M game. 

Unable to hit in the clutch the Blue 
and White went down to defeat on 
their home field to a strong Moravian 
nine. Three Valley errors added to 
the Greyhounds' cause as did a ninth 
inning home run by Lut Kemmerer. 
Mark Heberling, LVC first baseman, 
was able to save the team from the 
humiliation of a shut-out, when he hit 
a Texas league single backed up by 
a Moravian error for the lone Valley 
run. Howie, the Whip, Kosier was 
able to go the distance for the losers, 
giving up eight hits, and Jerry Labanz 
pitched superb six hit ball for the 
winners. The six hits for the Valley 
came from the bats of Heberling, 
Tarantola, Furda, Gluntz and Fasick. 
Fasick was the only Lebanon Valley 
player to get two hits, one a double. 


Before a large May Day crowd Leb- 
anon Valley blew a two run lead in 
the ninth and lost to Elizabethtown 
7-4. The Blue Jays scored five runs 
in the ninth inning on five singles and 
two bases on balls. Al Boyer who 
started the game for the Valley was 
lifted in the ninth in favor of Howie 
Kosier, who was greeted by two straight 
singles. Lebanon Valley scored two of 
their four runs in the first inning on 
singles by Richie Furda, Ross Fasick 
and Bill Tarantola mixed with an E- 
town error. Mark Heberling's double 
followed by Tarantola's single in the 
Ihird gave Valley a 3-1 lead. They 
notched their fourth marker in the 
fifth when Fasick lashed out his third 
straight single, stole second and scored 
6il Heberling's single. 

The Valley moved to F&M where 
they squeezed out a six to five lead over 
the Diplomats. It was a tight game and 
still tied going into the seventh. In 
the lucky frame F&M broke the ice 
with a pair of runs and took the lead 
five to three. The Valley surged back 
in the 8th when Richie Furda reached 

first on an infield pop which Hartman 
dropped. Lou Sorrentino then singled, 
and Ross Fasick reached first on an 
infield boot. Waltz Lenz came in to 
relieve and tossed a wild pitch to 
Merle Wise enabling two runs to cross 
the plate. This was followed by a 
single by Mark Heberling which drove 
in the winning run. Koiser got the win 
and although he was nicked for thirteen 
hits, he was able to stop the Diplo- 
mats in the clutch. 

The Dutchmen lost a close extra in- 
ning affair against the Moravian Grey- 
hounds on the latter's ball field. The 
Valley, leading most the game, scored 
a tie breaking run in the top of the 
tenth, but the Greyhounds came back 
with two in the bottom half. Merle 
Wise was the hitting star for the Val- 
ley with two timely singles, and Lou 
Sorrentino cashed in with a hard hit 
double in the sixth. Jerry Marsh col- 
lected three hits for the winners and 
drove in two runs. Al Boyer went 
the distance for the Dutchmen and 
yielded only seven hits; however, the 
Valley infield crumbled in the crucial 

In their next game the Valley squared 
their account with Elizabethtown by 
registering an 11-9 victory. In losing, 
the Blue Jays had an unbelievable total 
of eight errors. E-town took a 2-1 
lead in the first but Lebanon Valley 
tied it at 2-2 in the fourth and went 
out in front in the fifth 5-2, and then 
took a commanding 8-3 lead. How- 
ever, Blue Jays came back with what 
proved to be a belated rally. Howie 
Koiser was unable to go the distance 
for the victors and was relieved in 
the ninth by Lou Sorrentino. Don 
Carlin of Elizabethtown was the hitting 
star of the game with two triples and a 
single. Richie Furda and Mark Heber- 
ling paced the Valley attack with two 
hits apiece, while Ross Fasick extended 
his hitting streak to eight straight games. 

LVC lost a ten inning game to Al- 
bright at Reading by 8-7. This was the 
second defeat of the Valley at the hands 
of Albright this season. Merle Wise 
helped the Valley in a losing cause by 
walloping his first home run of the

NEW PROGRAMS, from page 1 

Other new curricula instituted at 
Lebanon Valley College this spring in- 
clude a five-year liberal arts-engineer- 
ing program in cooperation with the 
University of Pennsylvania and a co- 
ordinated "arts forestry" program with 
Duke University. 

In addition to these programs and 
the course of study available in the 
Conservatory of Music, LVC offers 
courses in the following fields of study 
in preparation for professions: chem 
istry, economics and business administra- 
tion, medical technology, nursing, teach 
ing. Many students going to graduate 
school are also enrolled in the pre-law, 
pre-medicine, pre-laboratory technology, 
pre-dental, pre-veterinary, and pre 
theological courses. 

Members of the Women's Athletic 
Association discovered that the W. A. 
A. initiates possess acting and musical 
talent in addition to athletic ability 
when these new members entertained 
at the W. A. A. banquet on May 12 in 
the Annville Legion Hall. The program 
also included announcement of awards 
and presentation of guests. 

Announcement of awards followed the 
ham dinner. Miss Betty Bowman, 
director of women's athletics and ad- 
viser to W. A. A., read the names of 
girls who would receive gold "L's" and 
chenille "L's." However, these awards 
were not available for presentation at 
this time. Juniors Evelyn Eby, Gail 
Edgar, and Rosie Hollinger will receive 
gold "L's" because they have each 
earned fifteen hundred points in W. 
A. A. activities. For the thousand 
points they have each accumulated the 
following girls will be given chenille 
"L's": Gloria Gulliver, Joyce Ham- 
mock, Darlene Moyer, Barbara Ranck, 
Lois Reedy, Beverly Ross, Frances 
Shroyer, Shirley Schaeffer, Janet Straw, 
and Mary Lou Young. 


Shirley Schaeffer, this year's presi- 
dent of W. A. A., introduced the guests 
of honor, hall proctors Miss Mary 
Gillespie, Mrs. Henrietta Steele, Miss 
Gertrude Turner, and Mrs. Nancy 
Miller. Retiring executive committee 
members gave amusing, small gifts to 
their successors. These ranged from a 
package of money wrappers for the 
treasurer and a whistle for the basket- 
ball leader to a balloon for the volley- 
ball leader and a package of corn pads 
for the girl in charge of hiking! 

Carrying out the theme, a "Barrel of 
Fun," the initiates began their show 
by coming through a gaily-decorated 
barrel. Dressed in sports costumes — 
hockey uniforms to bathing suits — the 
girls sang "Roll out the Barrel" and 
"Hail, Hail, the Gang's All Here" as 
they formed a huge "W" and then two 


The numbers "Sentimental Journey" 
and "Sleep, Kentucky Babe" were sung 
by a quartet composed of Shirley War- 
fel, Peggy Martin, Sally Herr, and 
Joann Butt. Sally and Joann then liven- 
ed up the show with two boogie woogie 
piano duets, "Yankee Doodle" and 
"Vitamin Stomp." Following this, 
Shirley Heizmann and Peggy Martin 
did a tap dance to the tune of "You're 
Just in Love." 

With band-aids on their cheeks as 
trade marks and appropriately dressed 
in old clothes, five other initiates pre- 
sented a hill-billy act. Audrey Da- 
Costa, Pat Greenjack, Priscilla Thomas, 
Irene Urian, and Lynette Waller played 
"Old MacDonald" by blowing on bot- 
tles, tapping on baskets, and using other 
appropriate "instruments." 

Another feature of the program was 
a jazz band composed of Joyce Dis- 
singer Herr, Sandra Nelson, and Gloria 
Ritter. Their rendition of "Ja-Da" 
climaxed the evening's entertainment. 

In previous years the Women's Ath- 
letic Association had guest speakers at 
the annual banquets. This year's pro- 
gram was the first ever presented by 
initiates to the organization and, ac- 
cording to those present, was very suc- 
cessful. Chairman was Sandra Nelson 
and mistress of ceremonies, Shirley 
Heizmann. Piano acompaniment for 
all the numbers was provided by Nancy
